Hacienda Tributaria de Navarra is the organization responsible for the application of the tax system of Navarra. According to Article 3 of its Statutes, HTN is responsible for "achieving a correct and efficient management and collection of taxes, in order to achieve a scrupulous and general compliance with tax regulations, without impairing the legal security of the taxpayer, with minimization of the indirect fiscal pressure that the referred normative originates ".
Due to the characteristics of the tasks entrusted to us, we choose the tax collection figure as the main indicator of our activity, without prejudice to the fact that in order to evaluate the results of certain actions other magnitudes more appropriate to the case are used.
For these purposes, it should be noted that the collection of Tax Treasury of Navarra, in 2016, reached, in liquid terms, an amount of 3,249,731.9 thousand euros, 1.60% more than in 2015.
