Property Tax Reform Programme in Serbia on TV Prva

The analysis of the Fiscal Council has shown that municipalities in Serbia have been facing big financial problems, and some of them are even on the “one step up the bankruptcy”. The project "Property Tax Reform", jointly implemented by IMG and the Swiss Development and Cooperation Office SDC, is aiming in assisting cities and municipalities to more effective process of property tax collection. This type of tax belongs to so called own revenues of local self-governments, and cities and municipalities are enabled to rely more on their budgets and this type of income, and less on the resources they receive from the state.

Analiza Fiskalnog saveta pokazala je da opštine u Srbiji imaju velike finansijske probleme, a neke od njih su čak i na korak do bankrota. Projekat „Reforma poreza na imovinu“, koji zajednički sprovode IMG i Švajcarska kancelarija za razvoj i saradnju SDC trebalo bi da pomogne gradovima i opštinama u efikasnijem prikupljanju poreza na imovinu. Ovaj porez spada u sopstvene prihode lokalnih samouprava, i gradovi i opštine bi trebalo svoje budžete više da oslanjaju na ovu vrstu prihoda, a manje na sredstva koja dobijaju od države.
