SARAJEVO – The Tax Administration of the Federation of BiH collected 5.14 billion KM of public revenues from its jurisdiction last year, which is less by 2.98 percent or 157 million KM, said the director of the Administration, Sherif Isovic.
At a press conference in Sarajevo, Isovic said that the most collected were contributions on salaries in the amount of 3.64 billion KM, and income and profit taxes in the amount of 355 million KM.
He pointed out that the decline in the collection of contributions that finance pensions and health care was less than one percent, and added that most public revenues were collected in the Sarajevo Canton – 1.94 billion KM, where last year there was a decline of 3.2 percent.
According to him, in Tuzla Canton last year, the collection of public revenues increased by two percent, due to the collection of certain arrears, while the largest decline was recorded in Zenica-Doboj and Herzegovina-Neretva Canton by slightly more than six percent.
He said that the Tax Administration performed more than 5,600 controls last year, in which more than 183 million KM of unpaid tax liabilities were discovered, which is why fines in the total amount of 5.97 million KM were imposed on 3,095 taxpayers.
“We were forced to submit 40 reports on the commission of the criminal offense of tax evasion with an estimated value of evasion of more than 5.6 million KM,” Isović pointed out and added that the overdue debt on the basis of tax obligations exceeded three billion KM, and that it will grow, without certain systemic solutions.
