(ANSA) - Rome, October 3 - Italians are fed up with tax
evaders, and seven out of 10 interviewed say that dodgers should
go to jail if all other punitive measures fail according to a
survey conducted by economic and social think tank Eures.
Interviewers asked 1,225 Italians about their experience
with the "fiscal behaviour" of 52 professional categories from
crafts, commerce, the public sector, hotels and restaurants.
"There is widespread complaint about tax evasion and
simultaneously a strong demand to strengthen law enforcement
efforts punishing those guilty of dodging fiscal obligations,"
the report said.
Of those interviewed 80.3%, believe that shopkeepers and
professionals who do not issue fiscal receipts should have their
license to practice suspended.
Over half of those interviewed (55%) expressed a negative
opinion of the operating methods of Italian tax-collection
agency Equitalia, while 21% said they did good work.
Italy is in first place in the world when it comes to the
size of its underground economy in relation to its GDP, with the
amount of tax evaded totalling 154 billion euros or the
equivalent of 17.5%, said retailers association Confcommercio in
a report earlier this year.
