Finance Sec under fire on lease car tax increase

State Secretary of Finance Eric Wiebes' plan to give an additional tax rate of 25 percent to virtually all lease car drivers, has been scrapped.

The coalition parties VVD and PvdA are working on adjusting the additional tax categories.

There will be five categories. More motorists will fall into a more favorable rate of 22 percent in stead of 25 percent.

Wiebes' plan caused a storm of criticism, especially in his own party.
