Another ghost application of the Ministry of Finances: After resounding success with sites and applications designed to simplify the taxpayer’s life and to facilitate the tax collection the Ministry of Finance notifies a new blockbuster: the development, together with the credit institutions, of a simplified system for the payment of the taxes, in relation to consolidated general budget, for the individuals who are their customers, without charging bank fees. In theory the system will be operational starting on 18 August 2011 for the clients of the Commercial Bank of Romania, which will be operational in September for the clients of the Home Savings Bank and Bancpost. The citizens can access the services of this system by internet banking or at the counters of the bank, using an application, made available by the Ministry of Finance, with which can complete the payment. This application will be made available to citizens even on the site of the Ministry. Nothing remains but to see if the practice is killing us. * * * We sit well with the crime: The General Prosecutor released the activity report of the Public Ministry for the first half of 2011.
