The city tax is not collected from foreign nationals who are war refugees
On 9 March, the Vilnius City Municipal Council adopted a decision to waive payment of the municipal tax for accommodation establishments providing accommodation services to Ukrainians who fled the war free of charge or at a special reduced price (cost price). The tax benefit is valid until the end of martial law in the country of the war refugee.
It should be noted that accommodation establishments are still obliged to declare the number of overnight stays provided to guests. The declaration form now contains an additional window – Exception – where the number of overnight stays provided to Ukrainians who have fled the war and for which the municipal tax is waived must be entered.
All other provisions remain in effect. The Council decision is available here: https://vilnius.lt/lt/savivaldybe/posedziai/posedzio-klausimas/?id=369708
