Families, children, tax policies


For too long, families have been neglected by our policies. The Democratic Party has even declared itself to be against a “natalist” policy.

We are in favour of it!

We defend the free choice of parents who either decide to send their child to a childcare facility or to take care of the child at home!

This free choice will be created by the fact that our state financially supports families who look after their children in the family home, in the same way as if a child went to childcare facilities. Today, this represents approximately EUR 2000 per month and per child.

This choice should be left to citizens and not imposed on them for ideological reasons.

We also want to return to the system prior to 2015, where family allowances were staggered and did not represent the same amount for each child on the pretext that “every child is equally important”.

Family allowances must of course be indexed!

In terms of taxation, it is again necessary to take into account the number of children, with a decreasing tax rate for each child in the family.

In terms of fiscal policy, much remains to be done.

In principle, work today is taxed too heavily. Even in terms of progressiveness, we have reached limits where we demotivate people to work more if we set them even higher. It is counterproductive and it is scientifically proven that “too much tax kills tax”. This is of course especially true for today’s singles.




Single people with children should be taxed in exactly the same way as couples with children. There should be no differentiation between single, civil partnership, or married status!

Widows should remain in their tax bracket: they have hardly any less expenses due to the death of their partner and should be able to continue living in the same way as before the bereavement.

We are against any new or higher taxes!

Inheritance taxes and property taxes in particular are “taxes on money already taxed”, and are therefore fundamentally immoral and destructive to people's spirit of initiative and creative impulse.

On the contrary: the total abolition of inheritance taxes for family members, for example up to the 3rd or 4th degree, would have a signal effect and would bring us a certain immigration of rich individuals who would then spend their money here and contribute to the prosperity of our society.

“How will you finance this?” we are often asked.

Just like a family that must manage its budget, so too does the “state”. Our tax money must be better managed, and many unnecessary or excessive expenses must be reduced! We would not overburden our international obligations (such as in terms of development aid), would radically reduce military spending (thanks to neutrality in line with the Swiss model) and would generally subject all spending to review, without taboos.

It is also because the government borrowing rate must not increase under any circumstances, so as not to threaten our “triple-A” rating and therefore our financial centre too!




On the other hand, tax policy can be used to encourage certain investments, whether private or professional, in particular: massively increasing the accelerated depreciation of investments in rental housing, rewarding measures to protect nature and animals beyond simple tax deductibility, also for the construction of orchards, gardens, chicken breeding, etc. (more self-sufficient and healthier living).

If you host students or socially vulnerable people in your home, this income should remain tax-exempt. There are many examples of rewards for socially desirable behaviour.

The basic idea is always the following: no constraints, but an incentive.

VAT on housing construction should generally be set at the rate of 6% without any special request or authorisation, as in Belgium, whether for new construction projects or repairs/renovations.

For people building their first home, the super-reduced rate of 3% can of course remain, but with no limit on the amount.

On the other hand, VAT on the purchase of luxury goods could be increased by a few points.

The registration fee (i.e. the tax on the purchase of real estate) for the purchase of a house should be drastically reduced for the citizen (cf. housing policy)

Less government - less spending - less taxes!

More liberty – more initiative – more tax income!
