A special team established to fight tax evasion should be up and running by June 15th, Interior Minister Milan Chovanec said on Friday. The team will be made up of close to one hundred people from the ranks of the police, tax and customs authorities and the finance ministry. The tax-evasion squad has been set up along the lines of Slovakia’s Cobra tax inspection team which uncovered tax fraud amounting to 94.2 million euros last year alone. The Czech Republic loses approximately 150 billion crowns a year through tax evasion.
