Under what resembles a tax amnesty program, the ordinance provides that late-payment penalties and an amount equal to 54.2% of interest imposed for late payments of tax may be waived for certain taxes under the administration of the central tax authority (ANAF):

  • Tax obligations unpaid as of 30 September 2015
  • “Tax differences” declared by taxpayers in amended or rectified tax returns reporting correct tax obligations, and due before 30 September 2015
