Road tax payment goes online

Greek vehicle owners will as of Friday be able to pay their road tax online.

Owners will be able to print their 2013 road tax form using the online TAXISnet system, then use this to pay at banks, post offices or tax offices. Alternatively, they can pay online via web banking.

They have to do so by the end of December.

Authorities will no longer issue road tax stickers. Instead, all data will be logged electronically.

The move is estimated to save some 80 million euros per year.
