Kathimerini English - - Focus -

Tax author­i­ties will start tap­ping many more state debtors’ salaries, pen­sions and ben­e­fits as of Novem­ber 1.

A cir­cu­lar is­sued yesterday by the gen­eral sec­re­tary for public rev­enues, Ka­te­rina Sav­vaidou, pro­vides for the low­er­ing of the level be­neath which salaries and pen­sions are pro­tected from 1,500 to 1,000 eu­ros, in line with the new bailout agree­ment.

The cir­cu­lar dic­tates that the state can con­fis­cate up to 50 per­cent of salaries, pen­sions and ben­e­fits of be­tween 1,000 and 1,500 eu­ros for ex­pired debts, and the en­tire amount if that is in ex­cess of 1,500 eu­ros.

The level be­neath which bank de­posits are pro­tected has also been low­ered from 1,500 to 1,250 eu­ros per ac­count holder per bank.
