Hundreds of medical professionals are being thoroughly investigated to identify cases of tax evasion. The Ministry of Finance has requested that all the records of doctors and other medical professionals to be made available to them from the Ministry of Health. The Department of Inland revenue will match the records with individuals who are registered for income tax to bring in the light doctors who have not registered with the tax authorities. Registered professionals will be re-evaluated and even visited at their workplace for further investigation.
In a recent case that found a doctor guilty of tax evasion, the culprit registered on his 72 year old mother a luxury car of a value of over 100,000 euro. It turned out that the mother had no driver’s license, and is suffering from health problems that wouldn’t allow her to drive.
