Interesting article in The Standard Daily: Marriage Tax to be Introduced in Bulgaria:
The Kyustendil municipality has prepared a bitter wedding "present" for the newly-married couples - they will pay VAT on their wedding ceremonies which will cost by 20% more than it was the case by now. The price of the ceremony which includes a speech delivered by an authorized person and a choir performance - has been increased from 78,9 levs to 95 levs (1euro=1.95 levs). If the newly married couple does not insist on such a ritual the price is only 16 levs for putting down the signatures.
