REACTION

Tax Administration of Kosovo deems it reasonable to react to the story broadcast last night on 17 March 2019 at television Klan Kosova by journalist Merita Neziri. The story announced that the Tax Administration of Kosovo has opened a tender for the new system of fiscalization of businesses, and the TAK wants to clarify to the taxpayers that no tender claimed by television Klan Kosova, namely the journalist, has been opened.

We would like to inform the media and taxpayers that the project in question has been planned since 2017 but no tender has been opened so far for that project, while TAK has only published the planned projects for 2019 since, according to the law and the Rules of Public Procurement, we have to prepare preliminary announcements to be published in the e-procurement platform –https://e-prokurimi.rks-gov.net/ as the project in question exceeds the value of over EUR 500,000.00.

Prior to initiating the projects related to taxpayers, TAK first invites the business community representatives for discussion in order for the taxpayers to be informed of the developments but also to get their suggestions.

We ask the media, in this case Klan Kosova, to be correct in broadcasting the statements of TAK officials because the way the story was broadcast last night was a distortion of official information.
