Almost 70 percent of the persons picked by the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF) for wealth controls must justify the source of amounts higher than one million lei, and 18 of them must provide justification for amounts in excess of 20 million lei, ANAF said in a release to Agerpres.
According to a report on fiscal risk brackets – given by the difference between fund outflows (spending, deposits’ setting up, investments, etc.) in a certain period from which the non-taxable sources have been subtracted and the incomes declared in the same period – for the first sample of 313 people selected for preliminary documentary fiscal checks following the risk survey performed by ANAF this May, 219 persons must each produce proof for wealth differences of over one million lei.
Of these, 118 persons must justify differences ranging between 1,000,000 and 5,000,000 lei.
ANAF said that the people at risk of not reporting less than 1 million lei were mostly selected due to the fact that they are relatives or kins to persons at high risk not to declare incomes, and also in keeping with the legal provisions.
The agency announced early this month that it was checking in the first stage 313 individuals with high revenues and high fiscal risk, most of whom reside in Bucharest (31), the Ilfov (34) and the Suceava (14) counties.
The duration of a fiscal check is of maximum 6 months, or 12 months respectively, if information from abroad is required.
The fiscal risk sample includes individuals with significant apparent wealth (real estate, luxury cars, other high-value assets, claims from loans to companies and/or individuals, significant deposits in bank accounts in Romania or abroad, high personal expenditures) who cannot be justified by the declared incomes.
Any incomes from unidentified source found by the tax authorities are taxed 16 percent, and the tax decision also includes the additional tax liabilities (penalties, interests).
If clues are found that suggest an offence, the competent prosecution bodies are notified.
