Council Tax ??

Post Posted: Fri Mar 14, 2008 1:44 am

Now i am hoping someone will correct me on the details of this, but....

I didn't realise there was a tax , I had done nothing to my old bungalow, and i sent the annual tax forms ,

Anyway last year, i decided to build, and had to go to Dobrich to the tax office and council offices etc

I was told i owed 3 1/2 years in "council tax " Sad

Well i thought mmmm do i do a runner now Embarassed

Anyway i was presented with the bill, ok it didn't hurt that much, not like in the UK

120 leva ,


120 leva for 3 1/2 years Smile


Anyway just some info, i am sure a few of you havent come across as yet

SAYING THAT WE HAVE NEVER PAID THIS YET BUT WHEN IT COMES TO IT I DONT THINK WE NEED TO WORRY, AS I DONT THINK IT WILL BE THE £150 A MOTH LIKE IN THE UK. WHERE IS IT YOU LIVE IF YOU DONT MIND ME ASKING??

Hi Casper

Ok, i knew there would be something to pay, it just got overlooked and was never ever mentioned, so I should have expected it, but very glad I have payed it now.

Me I live in Burnham on sea, but am really thinking of giving up my job and moving to BG, around the Varna area. I try to go there as often as i can, 2-3 times a year if possible. Dont expect to be there till July this year though, but want to see what prospects i could have if i do move, as I will still need to earn something

I was paying my accountant for 4 years, the annual fee "includes paying the property taxes" but alas they never did pay them. There was a minimum fine of 100lv to be paid, on both the properties i own.

I am paying my accountant 50 lv annually for the service to pay my taxes and all the money for ce councl tax for my properties. She is very efficient and when I come to Bg and check my status in the tax administration it turns out that she pays everything in time. Try to find a relyable person and you can live happily.
Good luck!

Hi jjmmdd
How's Strode Collegue?!!!
Our house tax is paid every year in march and ours usually comes to approx 18 lv. Paid at your municipality.6 lv is also for rubbish tax!!!
All the local taxes are difficult to find out about unless like us we get help from people been here a lot longer and already gone through it all!!
