TAK has collected over 68 million euros more in revenue than in the same period of 2022

The Tax Administration of Kosovo (TAK) recorded an increase in tax revenues of over 68 million more compared to the same period last year.

The director of this institution, Ilir Murtezaj, stated that in the January-June period of this year, the revenues collected from taxes are over 423 million euros, or 19 percent more than in 2022.

“ATK has marked a significant increase in the collection of tax revenues… We continued during 2022 to record an increase of over 21 percent and we are continuing during 2023 with an increase of over 19 percent. So, in the first six months of this year TAK managed to collect over 423 million euros, or an increase of 68 million euros more, or 19 percent. This success is the result of joint efforts and cooperation with taxpayers and relevant actors in the field of economy and finance”, said Murtezaj.

While presenting the results of the first six months of this year, Murtezaj emphasized that they have collected more than 91 million euros in debt.

Among other things, he emphasized that the non-declaration of income by a part of the citizens still remains a challenge for this institution.

“It still continues to be a kind of challenge for the TAK institution, but at the same time for the citizens of the country. Unfortunately, there is a significant category that continue not to report and not pay taxes”, he said.
