RBG may seize income or possessions

Did you fail to pay your tax assessment? The RBG may seize other income or possessions. This means that the RBG will receive your money from the Tax and Customs Administration or your bank. Or your partner has to pay. Or your possessions are sold off. Below you will find information about the measures and the fees.
