Slovaks to Tax More Energy, Telecommunication Sectors, Sme Says
Slovakia will introduce a 4.2 percent surcharge on the income-tax rate for regulated companies such as in the energy and telecommunication sectors, Sme reported citing Prime Minister Robert Fico.
All companies with a profit of at least 3 million euros ($3.74 million) and whose main activities are regulated by the state will be subject of the additional tax, Sme said. The surcharge will be levied on top of a regular income tax, which the government plans to raise to 23 percent from 19 percent, the newspaper said.
