The cabinet wants to return illegally charged auto tax

Government must pass a normative document on return of the illegally charged auto tax, in an attempt to unburden the courts of the lawsuits opened against the Romanian state Premier Victor Ponta said yesterday. The PM, who is also caretaker justice minister, talked on Thursday with justice state secretaries about a solution being found to allow for auto tax returns.” (…) It is clear that the previously passed law does not match either the European norms or the constitutional ones, and that government will have to give the money back. We should do this procedure so that judges and court clerks no longer deal with cases that eventually end up in government having to give the money back,” Ponta said, in whose view, the prior governments’ urging car owners to take the state to court to get their money back was both unfair and immoral.
The motor vehicle polluting emissions law, promulgated early this year, cut down the pollution tax by up to 25 pc, with vehicle owners being able to sue the state in order to get back the amount difference, if the pollution tax paid from July 1, 2008 and until the law this year was higher than that stipulated by the latter.
