Bulgaria To Set Up Tax Police Units in Early-2013

Bulgaria will set up tax police units early next year, as it remains the only country in Europe without such a police structure, finance minister Simeon Dyankov said.

" [...] I want these legislative changes to enter Parliament in June, to be worked upon in June and July, and to launch the tax police by January 1, 2013," the state-run Bulgarian News Agency quoted Dyankov as saying on Monday. The amendments envisage imprisonment for serious tax violations, mainly Value Added Tax (VAT) frauds.

Dyankov added that he expects the introduction of tax police to have a similar effect as the recent launch of customs investigation units.
