Тhe way of taxing cars is changing. The local tax will depend on their ecological status and the year of production. So from next year, taxes for cars over 15 years are rising by about 30%. Approximately 2 500 000 vehicles will be affected by this change.
One of the amendments to the Local Taxes and Fees Act provides for the tax deduction for cars with a catalyst. In addition, the tax for cars over the age of 15 will rise by 30 per cent. “We definitely disagree with dropping relief for the catalysts,” said Vanya Grigorova of the Podkrepa Labor Code, which can be used to check if the car owner has placed a catalyst and this can and should happen with the daily control of technical examinations. CITUB insisted on redistributing the tax burden on cars through the ecotax.
