Special Property Tax based on electricity bills

Press release

Description

With its intervention to the Minister of Finance, the Ombudsman outlined a number of problems regarding the imposition and collection procedure of the “EETIDE”, a special property tax collected via electricity bills , such as, inter alia, calculation errors, delayed processing of applications, especially cases of reduction or exemption due to economic vulnerability, imposition on non-constructed areas, interruption of power supply for unpaid bills to individuals requiring mechanical support. The Ombudsman does not overlook the emergency budgetary reasons that led to the imposition of the EETIDE tax but has pointed out, early on, that the proposed procedure for calculating and collecting the tax would result in specific malfunctions. The manner of calculating and collecting this tax should be reviewed so that it is separate from the supply of electricity to properties; it should also be calculated in accordance with the Uniform Property Tax calculus, which was created specifically for the collection of taxes.
