Local taxes

The collection of 2021 local taxes and fees has already begun

Payments can be made in cash at the local tax department for your respective municipality, by bank transfer, at a virtual POS terminal, as well as at any of the Easy Pay offices.

According to Bulgarian law, property tax, vehicle tax, and municipal waste tax can be paid in two installments. The first installment is due by the 30th of June and the second installment is due by the 31st of October.

Residents can take advantage of a 5% discount if they pay the full amount of the tax that is due by the 30th of April this year. Check with your local municipality for further details.

The payment of patent tax (also known as license tax) is done in four installments and is due on:

  • 31st of January for the first quarter
  • 30th of April for the second quarter
  • 31st of July for the third quarter
  • 31st of October for the final quarter.

Access your tax record online

Check and pay municipality taxes online. There are two ways to log in. The second option requires an electronic signature such as the widely recognised B-Trust. The more common way to access your online account is using a combination of your personal number (from the residence card) and a PIN number issued by your municipality. You can obtain one for free by visiting your local tax department.
