A ministerial decision expected to be signed by new Deputy Finance Minister Pantelis Economou will give the “green light” to publicising a list with the names of major tax debtors, each owing to the state more than 150,000 euros, it was announced on Friday.
Another decision, expected to be issued by the ministry of finance shortly, provides for the implementation of crosschecks on taxpayers who have deposited large amounts of money to banks abroad over the last two years.
The finance ministry will request details concerning the remittances sent by Greek citizens to banks abroad.
The evidence collected will be crosschecked with the “source of wealth” statements submitted by the individuals under investigation to establish whether the money moved correspond to income declared in recent years. If not they will be called to pay additional taxes and be fined for filing false income tax statements.
