Poland planning emissions-based vehicle tax

Poland's finance ministry has proposed replacing an existing registration tax on new and imported second-hand road vehicles with a system based on emissions and engine capacity. The move responds to EU concerns that the current Polish tax acts as a barrier to imports.
