Greece soft on tax evaders

Greek businesses and independent entrepreneurs are to be allowed to pay off their tax debts from the years 2000 to 2009 with a one-off lump sum payment. That is the upshot of a bill presented to parliament by Finance Minister Giorgos Papakonstantinou with the aim of raising tax revenues and getting tax evaders to pay up. The conservative daily Kathimerini finds this unfair to honest taxpayers: "The bill for processing two and a half million uninvestigated cases that was passed by parliament in summary proceedings has met with mixed feelings on the part of Greek citizens. For many independent entrepreneurs and freelancers it came as a relief, but for the regular taxpayers it was a confirmation of the injustice that the state has shown them for the umpteenth time. ... It is logical that upstanding taxpayers will feel at a disadvantage."
