Report on the Ministry of Taxation’s processing of tax evasion cases


Report no. 16/2020

The purpose of the study is to assess whether the Ministry of Taxation is tackling tax evasion in a satisfactory manner. 

The Ministry of Taxation’s effort in tackling criminal cases warrants criticism. The processing of a significant number of criminal cases go on for so long that the period of limitation expires, before they can be subjected to assessment of criminal liability. The consequence is that many individuals and businesses are not sanctioned for violating the tax and duties regulations. 

Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in December 2020.
