In economy supplement of Habertürk newspaper of last Saturday, news about the effect of resolution of the Constitutional Court on taxation of wages and right of action on returning of taxes overpaid was communicated widely. However, when I read the explanations of miscellaneous persons, especially of non -judiciary persons, I was confused as well. I had to reevaluate the subject in my column as my opinion on that subject was taken and published.
The Income Tax tariff given in Article 103 of the Income Tax Law was changed with Article 1 of 5479 No Law and binary tariff applied as 15-20-25-30-35 percent for paid workers and 20-25-30-35-40 percent for other Income Tax payers was brought to single tariff with four rates. It was forecasted that all incomes subjected to Income Tax would be taxed in rates varied between 15-20-27-35 percent and wage incomes, together with other income elements, were subjected to new tariff with varying tax bracket rates and amounts. In the new tariff enforced with the said law, it was stated that incomes more than 40.000 TL that subject to the Income Tax would be taxed in rate of 35 percent.
