Residents of a number of Norwegian municipalities increasingly have to pay more in property taxes. The municipality that collects the most property taxes is Gausdal in Gudbrandsdalen.
Norwegian municipalities are increasingly demanding more in property taxes from ordinary homeowners, P4 writes.
The Homeowners’ National Association reacted strongly to the new information. The association has created a list of municipalities that collect the most in property tax from owners of an average home, i.e., a home of 120 square meters.
Gausdal Municipality topped the list with NOK 8,780. Giske is in second place (NOK 8,300), and Trondheim (NOK 7,400) ended up third.
“It is a tax that does not take into account income or wealth. It turns out to be unfair and does not contribute to the equalization that taxes are supposed to carry out,” Secretary-General Morten Andreas Meyer of the Homeowners’ National Association warned.
