Brussels Region considers tax on mobile antennas

Saturday 13 June 2015 | 10:59 CET | News
The Brussels Region is thinking of introducing a tax on mobile antennas, De Tijd reported. The budget for this year includes an estimate of EUR 10 million for the tax. Each mast would be taxed EUR 1,500 per year. The Region said the tax would be a harmonisation of the current tax situation. Wallonia takes in EUR 40 million per year in mast taxes. Belgium's three main mobile operators are in court to fight the measure.
