Minister of Finance Mohamed Maait issued a decision to extend the deadline for Egyptian property owners to pay their property tax without a delay fine until October 15.
The decision has been taken after the approval of Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli.
In a statement on Thursday, the minister said that the decision comes to make the process easier for the taxpayers and prevent overcrowding at offices of the Egyptian Tax Authority, pointing out that this is the last deadline for paying the real estate tax.
The previous deadline for paying the property tax was set to end on August 15.
Legal procedures will be taken against those who do not pay the taxes after the new deadline, the minister warned. He said that tax returns can be filed online as part of the Finance Ministry's digitalization and electronization program, which aims to save time and efforts of taxpayers.
Maait expounded that taxpayers can now log into "http://enquiry.rta.gov.eg" or contact the call center on "0235317323" to inquire about their tax and file their applications.
