In February the tax authorities sent out 3.7 million claims to vehicle’s owners to pay their annual fees with a payment deadline of 21 March. Out of it have 322,000 claims still not been paid, said the Tax Administration said in a statement.
Together the annual fee provides more than 10 billion in revenue to the the state. The proportion of claims leaked, has gone up slightly from 8.4 percent in 2015 to 8.66 percent in 2016.
