Municipalities "forget" to collect debts, hundreds of millions of

The State Supreme Audit Office has published a series of reports on audits in different municipalities in the country, and the common denominator in all the reports is the uncollected liabilities from these institutions.

Thus, KLSH has recommended to Berat Municipality to take measures and follow all administrative and legal procedures for the collection of obligations for local taxes and fees in the amount of 382.5 million ALL from business taxpayers, state institutions, families, farmers, individuals, etc., the amount of ALL 3.8 million of the fines imposed by IMT for contravention by natural/legal persons, as well as the value of ALL 1.5 million of the rental fee from the lessees of assets owned/used by the Municipality.

In the Municipality of Durrës, the KLSH finds that the value of debtors from local taxes and fees at the end of 2022 of 165 million ALL is incorrect, as this value belongs to the value of debtors created in the fiscal year 2022.

A similar audit in Skrapar also revealed unpaid and uncollected liabilities from the Municipality.
