Would you like a riddle? What does the property tax deadline have to do with a patchwork quilt?
Unfortunately far too much.
After almost a third of property owners either slept through or ignored yesterday’s deadline for submitting property tax returns, there is disagreement in the countries: play the strong state, including the threat of late payment penalties and penalties? Or turn a blind eye again?
In Bavaria, they opted for the second option and extended the deadline by three months. Landowners in other countries are now shouting “unjust!” because the reminder printers are already running at full speed here.
Other countries should follow Bavaria’s initiative. That is the only reasonable consequence of the fact that hundreds of thousands of property tax returns are still missing. Anyway, one thing is certain: the principle of subsidiarity remains a piñata – and the property tax fiasco an ugly patchwork quilt.
