New taxes may be introduced if more personal income tax is allocated to Vilnius, expert says

On Thursday, 11 June, Lithuania's Constitutional Court ruled that legal regulations that distribute personal income tax (PIT) to municipal budgets contravened the Constitution. Only 40 percent of PIT used to be transferred to Vilnius City Municipality based on these regulations. The Vilnius authorities have lauded the ruling which will allow it to claim more tax money from the central government.
