Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Chancellor Angela Merkel’s planned tax relief for Germany won’t take full effect until four years from now, Bild Zeitung said, citing a Finance Ministry draft paper.

Income tax reductions would total 1.9 billion euros ($2.5 billion) in 2013, rising to 5.6 billion euros in 2014 and the full amount of more than 6 billion euros in 2015, the newspaper reported today.

Merkel announced plans on Nov. 6 to cut taxes, starting in 2013, saying the move would help boost economic growth.
