Milan, November 12 - The Italian government has
declared war on rampant tax evasion, Premier Mario Monti said on
Monday.
"Some measures adopted by the government against tax
evasion may seem like war measures and, in reality, they are,"
Monti said at an event organised by the Financial Times.
With cash needed to haul Italy out of the debt crisis,
Monti has launched a big drive to reduce widespread tax evasion.
This has featured high-profile operations at luxury resorts
and exclusive stores and nightclubs in big cities and a
hard-hitting TV advertising campaign.
Italy's inland revenue agency, the Agenzia delle Entrate,
has also introduced a new system to find evaders by
cross-checking incomes and spending.
But there has also been a backlash, with tax collectors
becoming hate figures for many people. Tax agency offices have
suffered a number of letter-bomb attacks in various parts of the
country.
A number of recent suicides have been linked to tax bills
people were unable to pay.
