ENFIA notices by end-Au­gust

Prop­erty own­ers face the same tax bill as in the pre­vi­ous three years, amount­ing to 3.2 bil­lion euros

No change is ex­pected to the heavy bill of the Sin­gle Prop­erty Tax (ENFIA) which Greece’s leftist-led govern­ment is im­pos­ing for a third con­sec­u­tive year de­spite pre-elec­tion promises to abol­ish it.

Af­ter the sub­mis­sion and pro­cess­ing of 6.1 mil­lion in­come tax dec­la­ra­tions, the In­de­pen­dent Au- thor­ity for Pub­lic Rev­enue has started up­load­ing the ENFIA notices for 2017 on its web­site.

All pay notices will have to be up­loaded on Tax­is­net or aade.gr by end-Au­gust for the first tranche of five to be payable by end-Septem­ber and the last at end-Jan­uary 2018.

In to­tal 7.4 mil­lion tax­pay­ers and cor­po­ra­tions will be billed some 3.2 bil­lion euros, and with the col­lec­tion rate at around 80 per­cent the state cof­fers can ex­pect some 2.65 bil­lion euros – the same fig­ure as in the pre­vi­ous three years. For the vast ma­jor­ity of prop­erty own­ers the tax will be the same as last year, so only those with changes to their prop­erty as­sets will see a change in their ENFIA dues.

The pay no­tice will clearly men­tion the amount of each in­stall­ment as well as the debt iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber which re­mains the same un­til the tax is paid in full. There­fore tax­pay­ers can just take that num­ber to bank or Hel­lenic Post branches and pay the monthly amount due for each num­ber.

Prop­erty own­ers who are fi­nan­cially un­able to pay the ENFIA tax are en­ti­tled to a 50 per­cent dis­count or in some cases a full ex­emp­tion, ac­cord­ing to a se­ries of cri­te­ria based on fam­ily size, prop­erty and in­come.

Own­ers who spot er­rors in their 1.1694 prop­erty data, which may raise their ENFIA bill, can sub­mit their cor­rec­tions through the “E9 Pe­ri­ousi­olo­gio” ap­pli­ca­tion on the au­thor­ity’s web­site (aade.gr). Par­tic­u­larly in the cases of in­her­i­tance or prop­erty trans­ac­tions, prop­erty own­ers (or sell­ers) will need to closely ex­am­ine their E9 form de­tails that should have changed from last year’s E9 form, and pro­ceed to the nec­es­sary cor­rec­tions as soon as pos­si­ble.
