Poros Tax Office Closing Postponed to March

The Poros Tax Office (DOY) will continue to operate until March 18 after the Finance Ministry postponed planned closures of tax offices on the Saronic and Cyclades islands, with their subsequent merger with mainland or other tax bureaus.
The ministry announcement said that the extension in the operations of the tax offices on Poros, Spetses, Aegina, and numerous other islands aimed at allowing these bureaus time to complete transfer of their services to digital platforms and put in place systems that would allow tax payments through banks and post office branches.
The Poros DOY had been due to close this week.
Meantime, the main opposition Syriza has submitted an amendment to the new tax bill calling for a one-year postponement in shutting island tax office branches.
