Taxisnet website now accepting card payments

The Independent Authority for Public Revenue has activated the online application allowing taxpayers to pay their dues to the state using bank cards (credit or debit) via the Taxisnet platform.

Taxpayers can now log into the www.aade.gr website with their username and password and follow the directions on screen under the “personalized information” menu to make their dues appear and select payment by card.

The website is all in Greek.

The Bath nest looks a lot more sheltered than the Norwich one. Good pics though at both sites.

....Britain will have to wait until May to enjoy next sustained bout of hot and sunny weather, say forecasters...
Oh No...We have to "wait until May"!

I know we're now considered to have the patience and attention span of an ADHD child high on Lucozade and Smarties, but "May" is just 7 days away!

April 21, 1967: A Date Most Greeks Want to Forget

For the army colonels who overthrew the government and established a seven-year cruel dictatorship, April 21, 1967 was the day of the Revolution and the rebirth of the Greek Nation. For most Greeks though, it is a date they want to forget.

For the people who were jailed and tortured, it is a date that brings back dark memories and nightmares, even after half a century. The same applies for the families of those who were killed by the junta.
