Opinions on the announced changes in taxation
In May the public were presented with the principles of the government’s socio-economic programme for the period following the pandemic. Most interest was elicited by the announced changes to be made in taxation, which the government maintain will benefit the majority of taxpayers.
Close to three quarters of the people surveyed overall (71%) had heard of this programme, with one in five expressing interest in its proposals and looking for more information on the subject. More of those who had heard of the programme expected to lose (30%) than to gain (23%) on the tax changes. A sizeable group (30%) expected not to notice any financial difference.
More on this subject in the CBOS report.
This ‘Current Events and Problems’ survey (373) was conducted using a mixed-mode procedure on a representative sample of named adult residents of Poland, randomly selected from the National Identity Number (PESEL) register.
Respondents independently selected one of the following methods:
– Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI);
– Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI), respondents receiving researchers’ telephone numbers in an introductory letter from CBOS;
– Computer Assisted Web Interview (CAWI), where respondents filled in the online questionnaire independently, gaining access by means of a login and password provided in an introductory letter from CBOS.
In all three cases the questionnaire had the same structure and comprised the same questions. The survey was carried out between 7 – 17 June 2021 inclusive on a sample of 1218 people (60.8% using the CAPI method, 26.7% CATI and 12.6% CAWI).
CBOS has been conducting statutory research using the above procedure since May 2020, stating in each case the percentage of personal, telephone and internet interviews.
