Mikloš leaves it to state officials to decide on Košice Tax Directorate

A decision about where to house tax offices in Košice will be made before the end of May, when a special commission is expected to announce whether the offices are to move into one common facility or remain separate, Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš said on Tuesday, May 3, as reported by the TASR newswire.

A decision about where to house tax offices in Košice will be made before the end of May, when a special commission is expected to announce whether the offices are to move into one common facility or remain separate, Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš said on Tuesday, May 3, as reported by the TASR newswire.

The commission will consist of representatives of both the ministry and the Tax Directorate. Its decision is expected to definitely close the page on a recent controversy surrounding the directorate's rental of a Košice building, which led to a stand off between the finance minister and the prime minister. Mikloš also announced that the Tax Directorate will extend the period for rental bids, with the deadline now set for the end of May. "It will be extended from the currently valid deadline of May 10," Mikloš said.
