Belarsuians protest against car duty
8:38, — Auto
50,000 Belarusians signed the petition against a new tax over the last three days.
The petition is posted on the website change.org. Initiators promise to hand in the document to the Belarusian minister of finance and MPs.
“As the excise duty on fuel contains contributions on roads repair, we consider the introduction of a new duty to be unreasonable. The draft law doesn't take into account the fact that some car owners use vehicles in rare cases, and equals them to those using cars on a regular basis or for commercial purposes. The draft law doesn't take into account the fact that one will have to pay the duty after the purchase of a car or when undergoing vehicle inspection, though the previous owner already pay the duty,” the initiators think.
The petition appeared on the Internet on December 13.
We remind that an equivalent of the vehicle tax – a state duty letting vehicles using public roads – may appear in Belarus the next year. Both companies and individuals are supposed to pay it when undergoing vehicle inspection.
