EU 'can't say No' to tax cuts says Padoan

Deficit is falling notes economy minister

(ANSA) - Rome, September 4 - The EU can't say No to tax cuts since the Italian deficit is falling, Economy Minister Pier Carlo Padoan said Friday.
    "Why should the EU say No to the cancellation of taxes on primary residences?" he told Il Messaggero newspaper, adding that Italy expected "attention and respect" from Brussels.
    The EU earlier this week said Italy should cut labour taxes rather than property taxes, prompting Premier Matteo Renzi to respond that tax cuts would be decided in Rome and not Brussels.
