"The amount collected in January-June 2012 stood at €88.4 million," the FS reported on Thursday, July 25, as quoted by the TASR newswire. The highest share of the tax in the first half of the year was collected by Bratislava Region (more than €22.4 million), followed by Nitra Region (€12.2 million) and Žilina Region (€11.2 million).
