TJUE Excise Duty Here National legislation providing for taxation of coal used for electricity production meets the requirement that the tax must be imposed “for environmental policy reasons” where there is a direct link between the use of the revenue and the purpose of the tax in question or where such a tax is designed in such a way as to influence the behavior of taxpayers in a way that better protects the environment.
TJUE Customs Here Where a declarant finds, after release, that the quantity of goods imported is greater than that shown on his customs declaration, he is obliged to make a new declaration in respect of that excess quantity and may incur penalties, but these penalties must be proportionate.
