Big Blow to Tax Evasion: Four Cheese Pies without Receipts

Posted by in Economy

Tax inspectors in Larisa managed the impossible:  a big blow against tax evaders. They held a bakery lorry carrying four cheese pies, worth four euro, without the necessary receipts or other accompanying documents. The lorry owner was fined with removal of driving license and car plates.


Most striking is that the tax evader was caught in action on April 7, 2012 and the fine was imposed on August 28, 2012.

I bet, the bureaucratic procedure was more expensive than the actual revenue losses for the Greek state.

It reminds me of a similar incident that occured two years ago: Tax Hunters Fine Two Pork Legs.
