Finance Minister Hardouvelis Vows to Correct Single Property Tax
Greek Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis has vowed to correct all errors within the newly introduced single property tax, referred to as ENFIA, after its faults were blasted by opposition political parties and taxpayers.
Hardouvelis stated to Parliament last night, "We have pinpointed a lot of mistakes and are trying to fix them... A month ago I became personally involved and fixed a lot of problems that would have affected around 2 million people. A lot of work needs to be done but we will get there", as reported by Kathimerini.
The single property tax encompasses all preexisting property assessments, such as the 2011 emergency tax that was placed on electric bills. ENFIA confirmed each household's faulty tax amount owed via the web, however it was reported that 457 regions around the nation were overcharged. The single property tax has been hit with many other miscalculations, while the first payment's due date is August 29th.
