Some Czech regions claim system of redistributing tax revenues is unfair

Some Czech regions complain that the system according to which tax revenues are distributed from state coffers is unfair and are calling for it to be revised. The Central Bohemia Region authorities want to submit an amendment to the law to the lower house in which the present criteria would be replaced by a system that takes into account demographic changes, the structure of the region or the length of roads that it needs to maintain. Under the present legislation, which has been in place since the year 2,000, tax revenues are allocated as a set percentage of the overall revenue raised. The Central Bohemian region says that if the system is not amended it will file a complaint about it to the Constitutional Court. The Pardubice Region and the Zlín Region support the call.
