Denmark to Tax Firewood


Google translated - http://www.business.dk/green/ny-skat-vil-ramme-750.000-familier

It seem like up to three quarters million Danish families from next year will be taxed when buying firewood for their fireplaces or wood-burning stove.

The future tax arising out of spring energy compromise, which introduced something as sexy as a “supply fee” to be applied to all types of heating fuel.

So far, politicians opted out of a tax on wood – possibly not to fall out with the voters of the approximately 750,000 homes and second homes, according to the Environmental Protection Agency estimated using the stove for heating, either as the sole heat source or to supplement such as boilers or heating.

But now heralds Climate and Energy Martin Lidegaard (R), the new tax is imminent and must hit wide.

“This also applies to biomass such as wood and commercially sold firewood. The government will in 2013 make proposals on the introduction of the tax,” says the energy minister in an email to Politiken.

The message triggers not exactly happy with the Danish Association for Suppliers of Fireplaces and Stoves (Dapo), which brings together all 13 Danish stove companies.

“It makes no sense to tax an energy source that is both CO2-neutral, renewable and saves us millions of tonnes of oil each year,” said Dapo-chairman Peter Jessen Hansen from Morso Foundry.

Dapo, scientists and environmental organizations argue about whether wood is a CO2-free energy like wind and solar, and about how much it pollutes, when the logs are thrown in stoves and fireplaces.

Tak for det Daniel.

It's valauble to have a direct insight on this from Denmark. 

This is crazy - wood stoves and open fires are synonymous with Scandinavia.

So whats next, an additonal tax on the traditional sankt hans aften at midsommer?

How long before the bastards try and push this tax onto the rest of the EU, and then further.

Its not that the firewood here in Denmark hasnt been taxed before cuz it has. This is just another tax/fee on top of the other taxes to bring in more money to the currupt government bastards.
