Tax arrears grow in 2009 due to rising number of liquidations

Tax arrears accumulated by taxpayers grew further in 2009 due to the rise in the number of liquidations, tax office APEH said on Monday.

Tax arrears primarily grew last year among non-operating businesses as the number of liquidation procedures rose considerably, from 10,594 in 2008 to 13,429 in 2009.

Within the total number of liquidations, the number of those initiated by APEH fell from 6,841 to 6,420 because the tax authority was took even more caution than before in initiating liquidations, the statement said. (MTI-Econews)
