Manager of Clinic Accused of Tax Evasion

Greece-tax-evasion-SDOEThe manager of a clinic of a public hospital in northern Greece is accused of tax evasion. An investigation conducted by the Department of Financial Police in the man’s finances revealed that he had not declared about  700,000 euros for the period 2003-2012.
The Department of Financial Police, after a lengthy investigation in the manager’s assets, has sent the findings to the competent Public Prosecutor’s Office. The Greek authorities have also drawn up an official report that specifies the exact amount of money the man had hidden from the tax authorities.
Tax evasion in Greece is a widespread problem that has been pointed out many times during the debt crisis by both the Greek government and Greece’s foreign creditors. Cheating the tax authorities is a kind of national sport for the Greeks. It is estimated that self-employed Greeks tend to under-report their income while investigations have revealed several cases of tax evasion among wealthy citizens who “hide” their money in foreign bank accounts.
The measures implemented by the Greek government against tax evasion have proven ineffective and the Troika has urged the government to conduct more expansive and regular checks.
