EU Task Force disappointed with tax law

The recently voted tax law and the delays in containing bureaucracy have displeased foreign experts who have been sent to Greece to help it reform its governance.

I dont know why they brought this tax bill [to Parliament]. We had given them clear advice about everything, and from the worlds best experts, a top official from the European Commissions Task Force for Greece told Kathimerini.

Meanwhile Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras has set up a committee for the reform of the tax system, led by Deputy Finance Minister Giorgos Mavraganis. The committee will produce a bill to reach Parliament in May and include the simplification of the income tax system, the drafting of tax procedure legislation and the introduction of new measures to combat tax evasion. The committees proposals will be presented in late April after public consultation.
