Deadline for payment of ENFIA property tax extended

The deadline for paying the first installment of the new single property tax, known as ENFIA, has been extended by one month, deputy Prime Minister Evangelos Venizelos said Thursday.

The original deadline was August 29.

The decision follows strong criticism from taxpayers and opposition papers after numerous reports of omissions and faulty data. Venizelos said officials needed more time to fix the problems.

Greece’s Finance Ministry was expected to issue an official statement later on Thursday.
