Lázár: Government to implement a comprehensive tax administration reform
A proposal regarding the organizational and personnel restructuring of Hungary’s National Tax and Customs Authority (NAV) will be submitted to Parliament shortly, and a reform which will result in tax content changes as of 2017-2018 is also being prepared, Cabinet Chief János Lázár said yesterday at his weekly press conference, according to kormany.hu.
Lázár called it a significant change that as of 2015, NAV will be required to prepare the tax returns of citizens, kormany.hu reported.
Lázár expects positive changes regarding the local tax regime for haulers and on the duties applied to the acquisition of vehicles. The Hungarian government also decided that no registration tax, duty, automobile tax or company car tax will be payable on hybrid or fully electric cars, Lázár said.
Lázár stressed that the introduction of a service provider tax – which does not view the taxpayer as an enemy but as a partner – is also essential an it is intended to improve competitiveness, kormany.hu reported.
