United Nations Tax Exemption: UN employees exempt from income tax
December 5, 2012 in Politics
The United Nations Careers website states that “Salaries, grants and allowances paid by the United Nations are normally exempt from income tax.”
The United Nations this year re-stated its desire to introduce global taxes on emissions and financial transactions, so you would assume that the employees of the UN would be paying their tax before they ask you to pay more, right? Wrong!
It appears that the United Nations has again displayed its hypocrisy by demanding that we pay, whilst they do not pay a cent. This removes any legitimacy from any arguments the UN has for global tax because how can countries be expected to follow the rules when the rule makers are exempt from their own rules?
