Tax­pay­ers to pay com­mis­sion for tax pay­ments at bank coun­ters

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

will try to con­vince tax­pay­ers to avoid pay­ing their dues at bank coun­ters by pass­ing the banks’ com­mis­sion on to them. Tax­pay­ers who rush at the end of this month to banks in order to pay their value-added tax or in­come tax will be charged with the han­dling costs, which the state used to pay to date, rang­ing be­tween 25 and 50 cents. How­ever, those who opt for pay­ments through e-bank­ing, ATMs or cards, will still pay no com­mis­sion to banks. The rea­son for the In­de­pen­dent Author­ity for Pub­lic Rev­enue de­ci­sion is the high amount of com­mis­sion the state pays to banks, reach­ing 18.7 mil­lion eu­ros per year. The de­ci­sion could bring it down to 7 mil­lion.
