In this context, the president of the Valencian Community, Carlos Mazón, who governs with Vox in the region, assured during his investiture debate that the tax reduction will mark its mandatory, starting with eliminating the Inheritance and Donation Tax.

Those who already lowered it
These new PP communities have followed the path opened just a year ago by other regional governments, also from the PSOE, which applied several tax cuts, especially in personal income tax, in the context of the inflationary crisis derived from the war in Ukraine.
At that time, in addition to several PP Executives, they also decided to apply tax cuts to the socialist ‘barons’ Ximo Puig, who at that time led the Valencian Community, and Emiliano García Page, in Castilla-La Mancha. However, the president of Asturias, Adrián Barbón, who revalidated his position after 28M, has recently wanted to defend the “Asturian fiscal route” against this tax reduction in the autonomous communities of the PP.
