Israel Using Technology as Key Tool in Crackdown on Tax Evasion

Top tax man wants to go after the person who travels ten times a year but reports a minimum wage salary.

“Take a person who travels tentimes a year overseas and is registered on the tax rolls as someone who’s earning the minimum wage,” says Moshe Asher, the director of the Israel Tax Authority. “Or take a person who has four apartments and doesn’t report the rental income but also reports a salary under the minimum wage. That’s something reasonable?”
