Hundreds of taxpayers rushed to local tax offices on Monday morning to pay their taxes. The length of queues incredible. Men and women of all ages had to stand on pavements and stairs for several hours to perform their duty.
Reason for the tax-office run was the three-day strike of tax officers during last week. With the deadline to pay income tax tranches to end on September 30.
The pictures of ‘shame’ with outraged taxpayers complaining about the trouble and some saying that they had been standing line for more than three hours flooded our television screens.
Most likely also these of the Finance Ministry. At noon the FinMin decided to give to taxpayers an extension of two days.
