Road tax deadline set to be extended


The Finance Ministry in Athens is expected to announce on Friday that it is extending the deadline for the payment of road tax (originally December 29) by a few days.

Some banks have already informed their customers they have until Tuesday, January 2 to pay the tax, which is unchanged from last year, but payments at bank branches and post offices incur an additional 2-euro handling fee.

The state expects to collect a total of 1.1 billion euros from the 2018 road tax.
