    Hello


    I'm frustrated citizen........


    This is the problem:


    Hungary’s Economy Minister Mihály Varga has on Tuesday submitted to Parliament a draft on changes to the tax regime to be implemented in 2015. An amendment of the telecom law is also included, according to which the telecom tax would be extended to Internet services. The tax will be proportionate to data traffic and every gigabyte started will cost 150 forints.


    Varga has already told a press conference earlier today that the scope of the telecom tax would be extended to Internet services. He argues that the original subject of the levy, namely phone calls are made and text messages are sent mostly not traditional tools, rather through the Internet.


    Péter Banai, state secretary responsible for budget issues at the National Economy Ministry, told an online press conference today that the Internet tax is estimated to generate HUF 20 bn for the budget.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Hungarian Government introduces internet taxation. 150 forints (Ft) per 1 gigabyte = around 0,6 € or 14 czech crowns.


    It only applies to internet suppliers, however as expected, the people will pay the price eventually.


    Dear international friends of mine, does any of your country has such? I am genuinly curious.

    That is now resolved - or not?
