Road tax law amended

Parliament on Thursday amended the road tax law following complaints that recent changes forced motorists of certain vehicles to pay out €200 extra.

The mistake affected 2,214 vehicles with large engine capacity (over 2,250 cc), such as vans and pick-up trucks.

They were listed under the new legislation as ‘van,’ a category that had a higher rate for calculating the amount due.

The amendment re-established the previously abolished payment ceiling of €299.

The road transport department said it will return the difference to those motorists who have already paid the higher rate.

The deadline for renewal is February 9.
