THE Provincial Council of Almeria will save using 80 tonnes of paper with the introduction of its electronic communication programme to replace traditional receipts.

The Finance Deputy, Manuel Alias, has announced that the Provincial Institution has launched a campaign to update the personal data of taxpayers in 84 municipalities, with the aim of definitively updating the service on January 1 with electronic communications.

The Provincial deputy of the Treasury has invited Almerians to inform to clarify any further information by calling 950 211 211 or at
