Jan. 26—Electronic payments will be the only acceptable means of tax payment as money order vouchers will no longer be accepted beginning Feb. 1, the Austrian Ministry of Finance said Jan. 22.
The new rules follow the implementation of the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) regulations specified in EU Regulation no. 260/2012.
If a taxpayer is unable to make an electronic tax payment under SEPA regulations, the relevant tax office must be notified and money orders may continue to be used, the Ministry of Finance said.
Adopted in 2012 but put into effect in stages, SEPA allows public authorities, companies and individuals to issue and receive payments within the euro area countries.
