According to a report in ekathimerini today it looks like the circulation tax itself is going to stay exactly the same as last year. If that is the case and given that the web page still appears to work for previous years I would imagine it will work exactly as before Bob. Obviously, being Greece, no guarantees.

I suspect Stavro that we are all waiting for you to put up your usual Guide to Paying Car Tax message! Bob.


Dear Bob yes!

Apologies for my late reply. I am checking everyday, the system is not yet open...I will make sure the guide is up to date with any changes and will let everyone know!

Regards,

Stavros

There is a strange silence on the Taxisnet website regarding Road tax 2017. Apparently there were a lot of changes to be implemented, but they eventually decided to keep the tax the same as last year. So the delay is because they had to alter the changes...:-)

It should be open sometime this week though.

I suspect this is because of the nature of the changes that were being proposed? The government wasn't just proposing to change the rates but also the basis on which the tax was calculated. If the tax authority had started to implement those changes it would not be simple to reverse engineer them.

Having said that, whatever they were developing they were doing so off-line. The web site that is active on-line still works for 2016 and previous years. If they are going to keep the rates identical to 2016 why not just add 2017 to the working site? How difficult can that be?

The same thing happened in the income tax system a few years ago. They introduced a system whereby people with foreign bank accounts had to enter the interest earned in the previous year before the end of January rather than with their normal tax return. The idea was to accelerate the collection of some taxes to improve cash flow. They didn't get the web site working until April but still fined people for not completing the return on time. The following year they decided that people would have to declare foreign interest earned on a monthly basis throughout the year. Whatever interest you earned in month N you would have to declare by the end of month N + 1 and pay the tax due on it by the end of month N + 2. They never got this system working but also the previous system to declare by the end of January no longer worked either. They went back to interest being declared with the normal tax return.

As far as I can see they have no functioning IT section at all. They outsource everything to private companies but they have nobody capable of writing a sufficiently tight specification and then holding the private companies to it.

For me it works exactly the same as last year so your previous guide should be OK, Stavros.

I have just paid ours through internet banking, save printing out paper and going to pay.

My friend paid €105 last year for his 1.4 diesel Yaris, when I printed off his form for him today the price has gone up to €255, he is going to telephone the tax office to query this.

That's odd. Is the Tax Office "punishing" diesel owners? My 1.2 (petrol) Hyundai tax has risen by only 9 euros.

For cars registered after 1/11/2010 the circulation tax is based on emissions. The official emission figure for a Toyota Yaris 1.4 Diesel is 104 g/km. The charge for cars with emissions in the range 101 to 120 g/km is €0.98 /g/km so for the Yaris it would be €101.92.

For cars registered before 1/11/2010 the circulation tax is based on engine size, arranged in bands, and varying with age. The Toyota Yaris has an engine size of 1364 cc which is in the band 1358 to 1548 cc. For cars registered after 1/1/2006 the charge for that band is €255. If your friend's car was registered between 1/1/2006 and 1/11/2010 then it looks like the charge is correct.

Looking at earlier dates, registered before 1/1/2006 back to 1/1/2001 the charge would be €240. Registered before 1/1/2001 it would be €225. There is no band with a charge of €105. Is it possible that your friend bought the car second hand part way through last year and it had been off the road? I always understood that you had to pay the full year's tax even if you only had it for a few days but I think somebody posted recently that they had only been charged a fraction of the full year's charge.

Our diesel Suzuki SX Cross has exactly the same charge as last year. It was bought new in 2104.

It must have some great options. It could be the star of the next "Back to the Future". (I get my fingers tangled sometimes, too).
