Tax office employees to strike Thursday, Friday

Tax offices across Greece will be closed for transactions on Thursday and Friday due to a 48-hour strike called by the union representing tax bureaus staff.

Employees are protesting against the closure of a number of tax offices and other cost-cutting measures adopted by the government.

A rally is scheduled to take place on Korai Square in central Athens at 10.30 a.m. on Thursday.

Members of the public wishing to meet end-of-the-month payment deadlines will be granted an extension until next Tuesday.
