The EU will impose a terror tax on Bulgaria and other member states, similar to the terror tax introduced in France.

There is no official indication whatsoever, that the EU or Bulgaria will adopt any such measure. More importantly, the EU does not have a direct role in raising taxes or setting tax rates. The amount of tax you pay in each member state is decided by the government in every member state, not the EU. bit.ly/2ij9kNm,
