Yes, unfortunately it is not a joke, from the next academic year (2017/2018) there will be a considerable increase in taxes.
Specifically, the topic "fortunately" does not concern all students. The planned interventions are
- The first installment, which was previously € 883.58 in the three-year and € 845.58 in the master's degree will now be the same for everyone at € 883.58.
- Taxes in band 9 and 10 will be increased by about € 100 in band 9 and € 250 in band 10.
The reasons for this important increase are linked to two important events: the stability law and a reduction in regional funding.
A reflection on the theme
Obviously, raising taxes is not the only possible solution. It may be time to think about a rationalization of spending or to invest in a more targeted way in certain areas. The theme is developing these days but in our opinion there is still a lot to discuss. What is your opinion on this? Give us your opinion by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
