It seemed to be quiet for a while about the vrijstellingoldtimer.nl foundation, with which Wouter van Embden and his team are fighting to maintain the motor vehicle tax exemption as it is today. Nothing is less true. Auto Motor Klassiek was already witnessing a month-long process of collecting and investigating data. Because where the 'old-timer alliance' went wrong, the foundation must now succeed. So good preparation is important.
All preparations have resulted in a 27-page document, containing all the facts and of course the arguments! That file is with lawyer Prof. Mr. Barkhuysen. He will take the whole legal review and will make changes here and there. He will review the legal content and refine our conclusions where necessary.
And then the time has finally come to provide the members of the First and Second Chamber with a personal copy of the manifest, in which the improper conduct of the government and the incorrect numerical basis of this policy are demonstrated.
How will it go on?
Only after Budget Day and the presentation of the tax plan for 2014, which also includes the agreement of the 'oldtimer alliance' and the Ministry of Finance, do the debates start and the content can be adjusted by means of motions and amendments. “That is also the right time to expose the inadequacy of the old-timer paragraph. We ensure that our file will be in the hands of all MPs in time so that they can judge this time on the basis of complete and correct information about this element in the tax plan. It is of course not yet possible to predict exactly how it will all develop afterwards. ” Said Wouter van Embden.
And you? What else can you do?
Support is important, now more than ever. Because the battle for the MRB exemption is about to begin. Only now! Auto Motor Klassiek supports the ideas of the vrijstellingoldtimer.nl foundation from the start, but it is important that you do the same. If you have not registered yet, do so now. Just as important are the donations. A fight like this costs money. And in the end, the entire old-timer world gets that money back and forth. We are convinced of that.
