STI structure

Until 1994 Lithuania was divided into 11 towns of republican subordination and 44 regions. The former State Tax Inspectorate (STI) had a structure, which corresponded with the administrative division of the territory of the Republic of Lithuania. It was comprised of 55 town and region State Tax Inspectorates (local tax administrators) and State Tax Inspectorate under the ministry of Finance (central tax administrator). Such a detailed structure of the State Tax Inspectorate was very different from the tax administration structures in the countries of the European Union. In order to change the structure of STI following the model of the tax administration structures in the European Union countries the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania (decree No. I-586 July 1994) decided to establish 10 county administrative units instead of the former 55 administrative units. Respectively on 1 January 1999, 10 County Tax Inspectorates (CTI) were founded (on
1 October 1998 Marijampole CTI was founded as an experimental institution).

The current administrative structure of the State Tax Inspectorate comprises State Tax Inspectorate under the Ministry of Finance and 5 County Tax Inspectorates.
