Taxing those with several properties continues
In a meeting yesterday, the government modified the pricing regulations of railway operators – train and subway – by enforcing provisions that will allow transport companies to increase fares by more than the inflation rate, under an agreement with the IMF, government sources told Mediafax. The Executive also decided to start the procedure of closing various segments of the public railway infrastructure, administered by the Transport Ministry and granted under concession to the National Railway Company. The money thus saved will serve for the maintenance of the remaining rail network. According to the sources, PM Emil Boc announced his intention to issue a new regulation that will keep in effect the additional taxes paid by those who own several real estate properties and cars with engines above 2,000 cubic cm. This would allow the taxes to be kept in effect next year too, despite the Parliament’s decision to enforce them only this year.
