Vienna collected more than half a billion euros in fees last year. These include the dog tax but also parking space management.

For some, it’s a rip-off; for others, it’s a long-overdue means of curbing individual traffic: the citywide parking sticker. However, for the city, it means one thing above all: additional revenue of a whopping 54 million euros. Whereas in 2021, the city would have collected 117 million euros, the figure will be 171 million euros this year.

But the Viennese also have to pay other fees, such as property tax, municipal tax, dog tax, and fire protection tax. Five hundred eighteen million euros was thus flushed into the city’s coffers. This accounts for 3.2 percent of total revenues.

However, this should not be confused with revenue from performance, which totals 851 million euros. This consists, among other things, of 225 million euros for water or 298 million euros for garbage.
