"The ministry is keen to allow homeowners to repay the tax, which has fueled public anger and vehement criticism by the political opposition, in six to eight installmentsThe first instalment of the tax, which had been due for payment at the end of July, has already been postponed until the end of September."

It seems the deadline for the August installment is now September 18 - a further two week +/- grace period from the original date.

For the most part, the calculation errors applied to other areas, not Crete.

(Admin adds:
Here is the reason why one should link through to this report. The first para of which reads:
"The Finance Ministry’s online posting of dues for the new Single Property Ownership Tax (ENFIA) on Monday gave the jitters to hundreds of thousands of taxpayers, as tax notifications were evidently based on a plethora of omissions and faulty data.")

An update on what Kefalas  has written for the property tax collection in 2014.

It seems our ENFIA payments are spread out over 5 equal installments.

These are August, September, October, November and December 2014. Nicely rounding up full settlement in payments in the government's current financial year.

If the property concerned is owned by two people, even a married couple then each pay 50% and are charged separately i.e. double the paperwork.
I would think the same applies if a property is owned by more people, each is sent their proportional payment demand.

Hope this tallies with what other people are receiving from the government via their accountants.

That 15% less to be paid in 2014 compared to 2013 seems about right - at least in the lower property valuation bands on Crete.

Received today:-

Chania 18/7/2014

Dear Clients,

We would like to inform you that, due to technical problems, the tax authority has not calculated the property tax of 2014 (ENFIA) yet. When we receive the property tax bill we will send you an email notice about the final timetable, the method of payment and the amount of property tax.

The most likely scenario is that the property tax bills will be issued at the end of July.

The full amount of ENFIA can be paid by the end of August with a discount of 1.5%.

Alternatively the ENFIA can be paid in six equal monthly instalments starting at the end of August 2014.

We would like to remind you, that the property tax of year 2014 will no longer be included in the electricity bill. The property tax bill (ENFIA) will be sent to us at the end of July.

Sorry for any inconvenience

Kind regards

ATSALAKIS & PARTNERS

Well all the earlier posts in this thread are up to last summer. I pointed out then that the Greek neighbours were saying that it would probably take until this year for the new payment process to be finalized. Well here we are mid year and I have not heard anything and neighbours not mentioning how we are going to get billed and what is the payment process involved.

Can anyone update me with what is to happen?

Appreciated.

Gerald

my post was for general info with reference to the 15% reduction and not aimed at your specific problem, quite a few people on this and other forums seem to have had their timh zone changed Wink

You've missed my point. There are certain properties, ours among them, that have never had a TIMH ZONE shown on the electricity bill. I'm not sure why, but suspect it might be properties built (relatively) recently and outside of village limits.

Copies of our current bill, sensitive bits obliterated:
Page1
Page2

Look at any and all sections, including the Dimos section - there is no TIMH ZONE nor any TAP calculation. This has been the case for all bills we've had over the last 8 years - no T.Z. ever shown.

Last year, the emergency property tax was based on Eur 3 per m2 for our property. This year, it is Eur 4. The change doesn't seem to be linked to any change in T.Z. because there has never, ever (old bill format/new bill format) been a T.Z. shown on our electricity bills.

According to today's 'Athens News' your price zone can be found on your ΔΕΗ bill. Scrutinising mine, on the second page within the left-hand box there is an equation for ΤΑΠ; the second figure for this is headed as ΤΙΜΗ ΖΩΝΗΣ - I think this is to what they are referring - in my case - 450, which makes my price 3 per sq. m. Hope this might help. Sad


this reply was earlier in this thread, although the format of the DEH  bills has changed your TIMH ZONE rating is still there.
above the payment stub there is a breakdown of the bill.
the TAP calculation is in the DEMOS section , in my case 132 x 500 which puts me in the x 3 bracket

You are right, the latest bill now has a TZ figure, it is 650 and it's put me in the 4 band.

The T.Z. is a number in the hundreds (of Euros per m2) that is used to calculate several property taxes and not just the emergency property tax. Some electricity bills show it, some don't. For most areas in Crete, the main T.Z. break point for the property tax is above or below 500. Below (or equal to 500), the tax was Eur 3 per m2, 500 to 1000 was Eur 4 per m2. Our bill has never shown a T.Z. in the 8 years we've been here, and when the property tax first came in, if you didn't have a T.Z. logged with DEH, you defaulted to Eur 3 per m2. That's what we paid from the inception of the tax until now. For the current year our emergency property tax is now at Eur 4 per m2 base.

If you look at the example on this site and click on the electricity bill, the T.Z. in the example is 1900 (shown in the ΤΑΠ calculation) which gives an emergency property tax rate of Eur 6 per m2.

The paragraph just before the specimen bill makes reference to the default Eur 3 per m2 for properties without a T.Z. Either we have now had a T.Z. > 500 established and passed to DEH, or the default emergency property tax rate for properties with no T.Z. has increased. I don't know which.

I have discovered why my tax has increased, on the bill the zone figure has risen from 3 to 4 and then a 15% discount was applied, so an overall increase.

I am in the Kato Gouves area, has this happened to anyone else I wonder?

Exactly what has happened to us too. Another poster on another forum has suggested that it is to do with the Τιμή Ζώνης (a tax valuation band), sometimes shown on your electricity bill. If you didn't have a T.Z., the default emergency property tax rate was Eur 3 per m2. The poster on the other forum suggested that if you now have a T.Z., the base rate may increase to Eur 4 per m2. We didn't have a T.Z. shown previously, and still don't, but our base tax rate has gone up to Eur 4 this year. I suspect, whatever the reason, we are stuck with it for this year.
