We’re in the wrong job.

The Guardia di Finanzia are cracking down on tax evasion. Last week they had a go at lawyers, doctors etc in all of Italy. One case highlighted was a lawyer who declared a taxable income of 10 euros a year but was driving a 60,000 euro car. More evasion was highlighted at the weekend when the local paper told us about a 68 year old women from Rimini. Her local bank was suspicious that she was paying large sums into her account every month and informed the authorities. They discovered that the women had 2.5 million euros in the bank and was also claiming 450 euros a month social security. She denied that the large sums of money regularly deposited were part of a money laundering scheme but claimed it was her earnings from prostitution. Obviously clients pay well in Rimini.
