Property tax to stay on PPC bills

The Public Power Corporation will continue to levy a tax on property owners via electricity bills despite a court ruling deeming this method of collection illegal, sources at PPC said on Tuesday after Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras sent PPC managers a letter pressing them to continue issuing the levy.

Left-wing opposition SYRIZA accused Stournaras of making “an unacceptable intervention which proves that nothing can stop the coalition of the memorandum, neither court rulings nor laws.”

PPC officials confirmed that further tax bill installments will be sent to homeowners by March. Those who do not pay the levy will have it transferred to their tax office, the officials said, noting that PPC would not cut anyone’s power supply.
