Cantons dangle juicier tax carrots for firms
Lucerne’s decision to slash corporate profit taxes in the next two years has raised the hackles of some neighbouring cantons and could draw unwanted attention from the European Union. The EU has fiercely criticised the tax inducements offered by Swiss cantons as being uncompetitive and in violation of a trade treaty between the two parties. But as EU and Swiss negotiators meet again, cantons are showing no signs of backtracking.
