first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greeks failed to pay taxes totalling over 9.2 billion euros last year according to data presented this week by the Finance Ministry, although the country’s creditors deem the performance of the tax collection mechanism for 2013 as significant given the fact that its restructuring was delayed.The new expired debts to the state created in 2013 amounted to 9.27 billion euros, from 8.26 billion at end-November – that is an increase of 1.01 billion in just one month. Just 18.69 per cent of that has been collected, totalling 1.68 billion euros. According to the bailout agreement, authorities should have collected 24.5 per cent.The old debts came to 53 billion euros, after the collection of 1.52 billion from previous years’ debts, against a target for 1.9 billion.The number of regular tax checks on major enterprises reached 324, compared to a target of 596.Source: ekathimerinilast_img
