An increase in tax rates is not required this year to meet the deficit targets this year, which were determined by the EU Commission. "I would also expect lower increases - if any at all - in excise tax in 2015," Finance Minister Mateusz Szczurek said on Friday. According to Szczurek, tax hikes were not required to meet the Commission’s expectations in 2014.
