Debt rises while wealth is hidden
Authorities are clamping down on tax evasion and corruption
But times are changing. Tax and legal authorities begin to clamp down on tax evasion and corruption more thoroughly. The G-20 and the OECD support the automatic information exchange of tax data. The European Commission wants stronger measures against money laundering. And Austria might give up its banking secrecy (at least partially). Is all this lip service paid to worried taxpayers (and voters)? Or is the tide really turning?
Organisation: VIDC/Wiener Institut in cooperation with the Federal Chamber of Labour.
