Suspension of import tax duty for taxi vehicles

On its yesterday’s session, the Federal Government adopted the Resolution on Suspension of Import Tax duty for vehicles used for taxi transport.

According to this long-expected decision, taxi drivers being in this business for at least two years, will be allowed to import, with no customs payment obligation, a new or used vehicle (not older than 6 years), powered by a 1.6l engine or stronger, and not manufactured in Yugoslavia.

The Federal Government also met the interest of taxi drivers regarding the settlement of their accumulated fiscal obligations. Therefore, the principal payment deadline has been postponed until the year of 2004, while an agreement was reached for the taxi drivers to pay – in the name of regular tax duties – a sum of 4.500 dinars monthly.
