Hungary May Relax Flat-Tax Rules for IMF Deal, Nepszabadsag Says

Hungary may offer to relax rules governing its “flat” tax system in return for a credit line from the International Monetary Fund, Nepszabadsag reported, citing unidentified government officials.

While Prime Minister Viktor Orban insists on keeping the tax, he may compromise by abolishing a rule requiring a two- thirds majority in parliament to change the tax, the newspaper said.
