Taxes, customs duties and other charges
Charges paid by Slovenian citizens to the State enable the latter to perform its tasks – in other words, they are used to finance a wide range of services that improve the quality of life in Slovenia and are accessible to all under the same conditions. In this way Slovenia finances its public healthcare and education systems, culture, sport, security, and public administration. The charges also pay for public infrastructure, i.e. the construction of roads and railways, telecommunications, energy, and other facilities. Slovenians are a responsible society paying contributions for the social security of all citizens.
