Mandatory Email Service for Greek Taxpayers

Greek taxpayers will be required to submit a valid email address to the Greek tax authorities by this May, when the Greek Ministry of Finance will launch a new e-service for citizens.

The Ministry will use the new service to inform citizens about any administrative issue regarding their tax payment, such as fines, additional taxes, pending debts and various notices.

Greek taxpayers who don’t submit an e-mail address on time will have to pay a minimum fine of 100 euros. This requirement even applies to the elderly, who may be computer illiterate and don’t have access to a computer, and to taxpayers who don’t have an internet connection and those who live in rural and remote regions.

The service will be implemented in an attempt to optimize tax payment services, limit bureaucracy, tackle tax evasion and prevent delayed or undelivered notices.
