Unpaid taxes in 2013 added up to over 9 bln euros

By Prokopis Hatzinikolaou

Greeks failed to pay taxes totaling over 9.2 billion euros last year according to data presented on Monday by the Finance Ministry, although the countrys 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 i.e. an increase of 1.01 billion in just one month. Just 18.69 percent of that has been collected, totaling 1.68 billion euros. According to the bailout agreement, authorities should have collected 24.5 percent.

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.
