DutchNews.nl - Minister to stop 30% tax ruling for low-earning expats

DutchNews.nl - Minister to stop 30% tax ruling for low-earning expats.

How on earth could they be so stupid? I really like the part where they're suggesting workers must be at least 150 kilometers from a Dutch border to qualify. Guess what? Kleve, Germany, is about 140 kilometers from Amsterdam. With a law intended to attract skilled workers taking away their most likely destination, I suspect some people have been shooting off their mouth without thinking about what they're doing.  There are very few places in the Netherlands you could both find a job and not be within 150 kilometers of an international border.
