Over 8 mln already paid in income tax self assessment
Citizens using the new tax self assessment procedure for 2014 have already paid over EUR 8 mln to the government.
Senior Tax Department Officer Klelia Papadopoulou said that until July 17 a total of EUR 8.18 mln had been paid by 11,483 taxpayers who used the new self assessment procedure.
The deadline was June 30 for both electronic and printed self assessments.
Papadopoulou said that a total of 55,750 taxpayers have submitted their tax returns electronically through the Taxisnet system while the deadline for submissions was last Friday.
About 200,000 tax returns are submitted every year in both electronic and print form so it is estimated that the rest will be submitted in print.
Papadopoulou that all those who should have filed their tax returns and did not do so will be fined EUR 100. Taxpayers are obliged to submit a tax return if their annual income is over EUR 19,500.
