A Common European Income Tax?

EurActiv reports on some budget drafts for the 2014-2020 financial framework. The really interesting part is the hinted idea of replacing current budget resources (mainly from VAT) with something that might be called European income tax. One of the considerations of the Commission appears to be that the financing of the EU budget from VAT is incomprehensible for the European citizens.

A bold idea indeed.
