BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungarian prostitutes will have to get used to doing more paperwork after a court ruled they must have a tax number to pursue their trade.
A court in the southern town Pecs rejected a prostitute’s appeal against a 50,000 forint (125 pound) fine by the tax authority and said she should have had a tax number, judge Roza Meszar told the national news agency MTI.
The claimant, who was unnamed, argued a treaty signed by Hungary banned the registration of prostitutes, but the court ruled they still needed to pay taxes, must have a tax number and an entrepreneur’s licence.’
An entrepreneur’s licence? Does she do something I don’t know of?
