Self-Employed to Challenge 2023 'Presumptive Income' Tax Law in Court

The Coordinating Committee of Freelancers, Professionals, Craftsmen, and Merchants announced plans to file a legal suit with the Council of State on June 17, contesting a 2023 tax law that imposes a minimum presumptive income for the self-employed.

During a press conference on Monday, the committee proposed a nationwide strike and rally outside Greece's supreme administrative court on the filing day.

Speakers at the event, including SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Stefanos Kasselakis and representatives from opposition parties PASOK and Nea Aristera, condemned the tax measure as "exceptionally odious and unfair," arguing it violates the Constitution and threatens the livelihoods of thousands of freelancers and self-employed individuals.

Various professional groups were represented at the press conference, including lawyers, craftsmen, small business owners, taxi drivers, accountants, dietitians, and street market vendors. The measure was criticised for being "horizontal and unfair," with legal arguments focusing on its alleged violation of constitutional principles.
