Municipal property tax increases more than agreed

03 April 2012

- Living costs increase less than inflation

The proceeds of the property tax rose by 4.0 percent this year. That is more than the 3.75 percent upper limit as agreed. But households don't notice because waste taxes are decreasing. Ultimately, households pay an average 1.7 percent more to their municipality. This increase is well below inflation (2.3 percent).
