I claimed on my Greek house insurance - here's what you need to know!

Re: Tax Changes

Well, our taxrate increases rapidly with increasing income, propertytax has to be paid, a solidrity tax (we use a different name but basically the same thing), we pay tax on interest earned as well as dividend tax on share dividends (at a much higher rate than you do in Greece!), and in addition we...
