The new anti-fraud rule drafted by the Treasury contemplates that «Reasons of tax justice and the promotion of voluntary income from debts», The defaulters who pay when they are informed that they will leave« in the photo »of the Treasury, may be excluded from the list with those who owe more than one million euros to the Tax Agency. That will be in cases where they pay all the debt in full "Before the end of the period to formulate allegations", points out the preliminary draft law on anti-fraud measures to which ABC has had access. Until now, the deadline ended on December 31 of each year and despite the fact that the affected party later rectified and paid, it entered the list that was published in June of each year, although it was published in subsequent ones.
Thus, Treasury will close the list of defaulters with which they owed more than 600.00 euros -Until now it was a million- and the jointly responsible companies of debtors as of December 31. Subsequently, those included in the list will be notified. "The proposed inclusion in the list will be communicated to the affected debtor, who may make allegations within 10 days from the day after receipt of the communication," he says.
And, after this, If they pay the full debt, they will be left out. "In the event that the debtors pay the total amount owed on the reference date before the end of the period to formulate allegations, they will not be included in the comprehensive lists of debtors to the Treasury for debts or tax penalties", says the text, which develops an old project of the previous team commanded by Cristóbal Montoro.
Along with it, Hacienda will encourage all taxpayers to pay their sanctions and debts before, raising the reduction by sanctions derived from the minutes with agreement of 50% to 65% and those of fines of prompt payment, from 30% to 40%. In this way, it is about reducing the high litigiousness that the Tax Agency now maintains with taxpayers, encouraging agreement and payment for the joy of public coffers
The eyes of the Treasury are also directed at tobacco fraud and in the game. The Ministry of Finance also foresees greater sanctions for tobacco fraud, games and greater information requirements for betting operators to monitor their activity, as well as greater control to avoid manipulation of this type of games.
