The State Tax Office (Apeh) is planning to use increased publicity and stricter penalties to fight widespread tax evasion among businesses, national daily Magyar Hírlap reported. In a proposal pending Parliamentary approval, Apeh has put forward a plan to publish company information online on enterprises using the simplified business tax system (EVA), without specifying how this would serve as a deterrent against tax fraud. Moreover, the tax office would withdraw the tax number of companies with a fictitious address or no registered company representative with immediate effect until further investigation. (MH 11)
