Murati: Property tax increase was initiated by former governments

The Minister of Finance, Hekuran Murati, said that the current government cannot be held responsible for the property tax increase, because the decision for a 100 percent increase was made by the former Mustafa government and was executed by Haradinaj.

According to him, only the entry into force is happening now, while the responsibilities should be sought from the previous ones.

Minister Murati made these comments today at a press conference. He, despite the journalists’ insistence, did not tell the value of the wage coefficient, giving priority to the increase in property tax. Murati said that most of this tax is generated by the land tax.

While giving details about the tax increase procedures, Murati said that the Property Tax Law entered into force on January 26, 2018, while it was predicted that its implementation will take place after 5 years, which falls exactly at the beginning of 2023.
