The leader in the Burgas region is Sozopol, where the tax tax for taxi drivers is BGN 1,000

After the announced anti-crisis measure, according to which the state will pay to the municipalities part of the patent tax for taxi drivers, IME summarized the data on the amount of the tax in the individual municipalities in the country.

According to the information collected for 2020, in almost all municipalities 265 municipalities the tax is at the set minimum - BGN 300,

which most likely means that they either do not have a taxi at all or that the municipal administration does not consider it necessary to tax it above the minimum values.

However, there are several visible clusters of municipalities with a high taxi tax - with the highest values are the tourist municipalities in the district of Burgas, as well as in the capital and several municipalities around it.

It is clear from the data that the leader in the Burgas region is Sozopol, where the tax is BGN 1,000, reported. Burgas ranks second with BGN 660, and several municipalities pay BGN 600 each.

These are Pomorie, Primorsko and Tsarevo. Aytos ranks after them with BGN 400. BGN 300 tax is paid in Nessebar, Ruen, Karnobat, Sungurlare, Kameno and Sredets. Only Malko Tarnovo did not submit data on the amount of the tax.

Most regional cities have a higher rate, where almost all real taxi activity in the country is carried out.

With the new measure, drivers will pay the minimum amount of BGN 300 everywhere, and the state budget will compensate the difference up to the amount determined by each municipality by transferring to the municipal budget. Such are the promises of the government, at least for now.
