Luanda — Just over 2.3 billion kwanzas is the provisional amount that was collected by the authorities in charging the 2017 Road Tax, which corresponds to 42.11 per cent from the expected total amount of about AKZ 5 billion.
According to a document released by the General Tax Administration (AGT), which has reached ANGOP, the provisional data result from the tax payment period that ended in April this year.
ANGOP has learnt that those covered by the obligation to pay the road tax and who failed to do so by last April are compelled to pay a fine, which corresponds to 50% of the amount to be paid (that is the value of the respective road tax plus the fine).
According to the rules of the AGT, the amount of the road tax to be paid varies according to the cylinder specification of the motor vehicle.
Meanwhile, recent data put out by the AGT show that over 60% of drivers refused to pay the 2016 road tax alleging that the state of roads degradation do not justify such payment.
