The Tax Directorate of the Slovak Republic has called off a tender for the long-term rent of an office building that was supposed to house the tax office in Košice.

Tax Directorate Director General Igor Krnáč has stated for the TASR newswire that he decided to cancel the procurement after he familiarized himself with the commission's recommendations because an objective assessment of all quantitative and qualitative parameters based on the submitted bids, including the additionally provided information, was not possible, particularly in terms of their economic impact on the state budget.
