Revenue Commissioners Say Tax Evasion Becoming An Issue

As I predicted in my post on 4 February 2009, the Irish Revenue Commissioners have declared that tax evasion is becoming an issue during the current recession. According to the 9 p.m. news on RTE Television on 23 April 2009, the Revenue Commissioners are increasingly concerned at the increasing level of tax evasion and have started targeting cash businesses; this will include shops, pubs and solicitors' offices. They will also visit construction sites to examine books and records.

Despite their efforts, I still predict that there will continue to be an increase in tax evasion and black economy working.
