EEK 100,000 tax on SUVs ?


A car tax based on the level of CO2 pollution is very likely to be introduced in Estonia according to the Minister of Finance Ivari Padar. It could reach EEK 100,000 for the first registration of the most powerful SUVs. The tax would be applicable only to new cars and could enter into force in 2009. That would approximately bring EEK 620 million to the State budget and in average a car buyer would pay EEK 19,000 extra.

However, the whole car tax plan could be derailed by the Reform Party that proposes to increase excise tax on fuel since it would reduce consumption and thus pollution. In turn, the plan to increase fuel tax is opposed not only by Social Democrats, but also the third coalition partner IRL.

Une taxe sur les véhicules polluants serait en préparation

Le Ministre des Finances a annoncé qu’une taxe basée sur le niveau de CO2 rejeté par le véhicule pourrait entrer en vigueur dés 2009. Cette taxe atteindrait environ 6500 euros pour les véhicules les plus polluants comme les SUVs et serait seulement applicable pour les nouveaux véhicules. Cela amènerait près de 40 millions d’euros au budget du gouvernement, à condition que les ventes de voitures neuves ne dégringolent pas…
