"According to the Law on Sewerage Systems of 1971 (article 30) for the imposition of sewerage fees, the enforcement should have started from 2010, nevertheless it was delayed due to the non-start of the project".
Finally, he said, "SAK decided last July that for 2021 a tax will be imposed for the first time with a tax rate of 0,4 per thousand. The annual sewage fee is imposed on the estimated value of the Real Estate at prices 1.1.2018 as it was determined based on the general assessment of the Real Estate conducted, in accordance with the provisions of article 69 (I) of the Real Estate (Occupation, Registration and Assessment) of Law Chapter 224 ».
Answering a relevant question, Mr. Karagiannis said that "due to a technical problem and the serious understaffing of SAK, incorrect bills and charges have been sent and the owners or owners of real estate that fall within the limits of SAK can pay the exact amount of tax through JCC Smart until June 30, 2021 ".

To another question, the President of SAK answered that "citizens will enjoy in about two years the services of a modern biological station of European standards. This is because there were six years of delay in the start of work for the Sewage Treatment Plant in Achna, due to involvement in the Tender Review Authority, the recent submission of taxation, the relocation of SAK to the SEL execution site in Achna and the inflow of revenue into the SA fund " .
