December 18th: PAYING circulation tax on-line
Message from John Mines:- In terms of paying, it comes down to using the code you get when printing circulation tax details. If your Greek bank supports payment of these types of bill online, it should be easy. However, the English translation on Eurobank can require a little application! I didn't have to register. If you're outside Greece, the online system is brilliant and avoids all sorts of messing around getting people to go to offices to pay bills.
NB apparently it's possible to get fined the amount of the road tax, for non-payment !
Also, here's a link to the guide I used to check if my Greek car insurance is valid. It actually worked.

b. Πινακίδες/License plates
c. Φωτοτυπία της δήλωσης εισοδήματος που να αποδεικνύεται ποιος είναι ο κάτοχος του Ι.Χ./Photocopy of income tax statement to prove you own the vehicle

e. E9 statement showing that you own or rent a space to park the stationary vehicle. If you do not own or rent a parking space, a friend or relative with a parking space can sign a dilosi stating they are letting you use theirs and have it stamped at the police station. Present this along with a photocopy of their E9.
It is not necessary to have insurance on a withdrawn vehicle.
Extract from the article in Living in Greece - Circulation Tax . This has information about renewing your tax before a detailed section about withdrawing a vehicle.
