Changes in the payment of real estate tax

In total, in Transcarpathian region, 3336 people have received notification - decision of payment of the tax on immovable property other than land. Because changes to the law have long been discussed in the media, and the deadline for payment of the tax is 60 days after receiving a notification (it ended on September 1), not many citizens have paid the tax.
