A dif­fi­cult af­fair

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The gov­ern­ment’s in­ef­fi­ciency when it comes to ex­er­cis­ing its ad­min­is­tra­tive func­tions is now ob­vi­ous, as is made ap­par­ent on an al­most daily ba­sis. This is the case even when the coali­tion at­tempts to im­ple­ment its own, er­ro­neous poli­cies. A typ­i­cal ex­am­ple of the kind of in­ef­fi­ciency plagu­ing the ad­min­is­tra­tion is the mea­sures re­gard­ing ser­vice in­voices for the self-em­ployed, which re­quire a new ex­plana­tory cir­cu­lar in or­der for peo­ple to un­der­stand ex­actly what will ap­ply. Another ex­am­ple is tax in­spec­tions, when, clearly, the ex­ist­ing mech­a­nisms do not suf­fice. What is ob­vi­ous is that over­tax­a­tion, in com­bi­na­tion with the afore­men­tioned ad­min­is­tra­tive in­abil­ity and an over­all vague­ness, makes daily life, per­haps even mere sur­vival in this coun­try, a par­tic­u­larly dif­fi­cult af­fair for the av­er­age per­son.
