Cabinet asks Finance Minister to extend property tax deadline

CABINET has asked Finance Minister Brigita Schmögnerová to elaborate an amendment to the law on tax and fee administration concerning the deadline to submit property tax returns.
The main goal of the amendment is the extension of the deadline for the property tax returns. Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said that the deadline for the delivery of property tax returns should be prolonged by a couple of months.
The cabinet's motion was motivated by criticism from citizens and the non-preparedness for the law's implementation, said the PM. He sees the main problem as excessive bureaucracy related to the delivery of property tax returns. Therefore, the next task of the Finance Ministry is to remove redundant bureaucracy.
