Disgruntled Athens cabbies warn of possible action over taxes

The union representing the Greek capitals taxi owners has called for the resignation of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and the government, warning that it is mulling action as the tourism season kicks into high gear unless their tax burden is reduced.

Cabbies are protesting the imposition of a 26 percent tax on the earnings of freelance professionals from the first euro as well as having to pay 55 percent of the tax on estimated revenues for 2014 with this years tax return.

We, the simple folk, the people with no distinctions or titles, who for five years have been giving our blood and life so that the numbers add up for the creditors and their representatives, we will be the ones to raise the banner of revolt first, said the announcement on Wednesday by the Attica Taxi Owners Association.
