Today, in a several-hour-long meeting, Mr. Zoran Pašalić, the Protector of Citizens, talked with the representatives of the Internet Workers Association exchanging information on the situation of the workers earning income from abroad after the Tax Administration issued forms for them to pay taxes for the previous five years.

At the meeting, initiated by the Protector of Citizens at the end of the last week in order to have a comprehensive understanding of the facts regarding the position of the workers on the Internet, the Associations’ representatives announced that they would submit to the Protector of Citizens relevant documents in their possession.

After learning that citizens who earn income from abroad from freelancing were called to retroactively report and pay taxes for the previous few years, the Protector of Citizens launched own-initiative investigation to control the Tax Administration of the Ministry of Finance.
