 TVi Channel Pays its Debt to Tax Service

TVi Channel paid 4 million hryvnias (500 thousand USD) of tax debt to the state budget.

The news was reported by the Channel's official website.

The Channel collected the money among its viewers. Also, the United opposition allocated 2 million from its election fund.

In its turn, the State Tax Service stated that it "greets the TVi's decision to perform its obligations to the state and pay the tax debt to the state budget."

At the same time it noted that the Tax Service "levies tax payments (in case of breech of the law - with fines) for the state or local budget and not in its favor."

The taxmen reminded that the legality of the state claims to the Channel was confirmed by a court decision and forensic examination.

"Respecting the principles of freedom of speech the officials of the Tax Service have never expressed any demands regarding editorial policy of the TV Channel or interrupted the work of its journalists. The Tax Service has protected the state interests performing its legal obligations," concluded the statement.
