(Fahimeh Barati, Los Angeles)دكتر فريدون خاوند (راديوآزادي): نظام مالياتي در همة كشور ها يكي از مهم ترين عوامل تأثير گذارنده بر فعاليت اقتصادي و عدالت اجتماعي است و به همين سبب فراهم آوردن اين نظام و يا اصلاح آن، با توجه به پيآمد هاي خطيرش، در زمرة حساس ترين حوزه هاي تصميم گيري سياسي است. نظام مطلوب مالياتي آنست كه با تكيه بر گسترده ترين و در همان حال عادلانه ترين پاية مالياتي، امكانات مالي لازم را به ويژه براي انجام وظايف حكومتي در اختيار دولت قرار دهد بي آنكه در راه فعاليت هاي زايندة ثروت مانعي به وجود آورد. مجلس ششم و دولت محمد خاتمي در اين حوزه گام هاي مثبتي برداشته‌اند و ابتكار هاي آنها در زمينة اصلاح نظام مالياتي ايران، كه از آغاز سال جاري خورشيدي به اجرا گذاشته شد، در مجموع با استقبال محافل اقتصادي داخلي و خارجي روبرو شده است. براي پي بردن به تازه ترين تحولات نظام مالياتي ايران نخست ياد آوري مي كنيم كه ماليات ها در اين كشور، همانند بسياري ديگر از كشور هاي جهان، به دو گروه مستقيم و غير مستقيم تقسيم ميشود. اصلاحات دولت خاتمي ناظر بر گروه ماليات هاي مستقيم است كه دو بخش ماليات بر در آمد و ماليات بر دارايي را در بر ميگيرد. قانون جامع ماليات هاي مستقيم ايران كه در 1345 خورشيدي به تصويب رسيده بود، پس از انقلاب در سال 1366 مورد بازبيني قرار گرفت، اما به گونه‌اي بسيار ناشيانه كه به جاي اصلاح قانون قديم، بر نابساماني هاي آن افزود و موانع تازه‌اي را بر سر راه فعاليت اقتصادي در كشور به وجود آورد. نظام مالياتي حاصل از قانون 1366،‌ به شصت در صد از توليد ناخالص داخلي ايران امكان ميداد از پرداخت ماليات بگريزد و، به همين سبب، فشار مالياتي عمدتا بر كارمندان و شركت ها، كه راه فرار نداشتند، متمركز ميشد. همان نظام تمايل به خروج از كشور را در سرمايه گذاران داخلي افزايش ميداد و، در همان حال، يكي ازموانع اصلي در راه ورود سرمايه‌گذاران خارجي بود. سرانجام با اصلاحية مجلس شوراي اسلامي، كه در آذر ماه سال گذشتة خورشيدي به تصويب رسيد، قانون 1366 عميقا دگرگون شد و زمينة لازم براي آغاز فصلي تازه‌ در نظام ماليات ستاني ايران به وجود آمد. در قانون تازه بخش حد اقل از در آمد افراد، كه از معافيت مالياتي برخوردار است، افزايش يافت و قرار شد اين حد اقل هر سال، به نسبت نرخ تورم، بيشتر شود. در آمد شركت ها نيز كه گاه زير فشار نرخ هاي مالياتي بالاي پنجاه در صد قرار ميگرفتند، با قانون تازه مشمول نرخ واحد 25 در صد ميشوند. نظام تازة مالياتي ايران، در رابطه با نظام پيشين، شفافيت بيشتر و پيچيدگي كمتري دارد و اگر درست اجرا شود مي تواند فشار مالياتي بر توليد كنندگان ايراني را كمتر كند و، در همان حال، دريافتي هاي دولت را دستكم در دراز مدت بالا ببرد. محافل بين‌المللي نيز، در مجموع، اصلاح نظام مالياتي را در ايران مثبت ارزيابي كرده‌اند.

درقانون تازه ماليات مستقيم، سطح حداقل در آمد معاف از ماليات افزايش يافت و اين حداقل هر سال، به نسبت نرخ تورم، بيشتر نيز خواهد شد. ماليات بر در آمد شركت ها نيز كه گاه زير فشار نرخ هاي بالاي 50 در صد قرار مي گرفت، با قانون تازه مشمول نرخ واحد 25 در صد مي شود. نظام تازة مالياتي ايران، در رابطه با نظام پيشين، شفافيت بيشتر و پيچيدگي كمتري دارد و اگر درست اجرا شود، مي تواند فشار مالياتي بر توليد كنندگان ايراني را كمتر كند و در همان حال، دريافتي هاي دولت را در دراز مدت بالا ببرد. محافل بين‌المللي نيز، در مجموع، اصلاح نظام مالياتي را در ايران مثبت ارزيابي كرده‌اند.
