ATHENS – Chaos in Greece’s tax collection system – again – means the government will likely be force to extend the June 30 filing deadline despite its statements otherwise.

It was estimated that the department will need at least another 10 days to handle filings, which must be done electronically. It wasn’t explain why since the forms come via the Internet there is such disarray.

The Finance Ministry and the accounting sector said only about 300,000 tax statements of six million due have been filed so far, far less than the 1.5 million at this point last year, and many are riddled with errors in automatically-filled sections, Kathimerini said.

Businesses who want to file can’t because the online portal for the submission of enterprises’ statements have been closed without explanation and won’t open until June 5 at the soonest.

That means some 200,000 enterprises will have no more than 25 days to submit their statements via the General Secretariat of Information Systems platform
