Senior Japanese tax official quits over scandal

Senior tax official quits after revelations that he lived in a government-subsidised apartment with his mistress

The head of Japan’s tax panel has quit over a scandal involving a mistress.

Masaki Homma resigned after revelations that he lived in a
government-subsidised apartment with his mistress, reported the FT.

It was seen as inappropriate that a senior official should be seen
squandering taxpayers’ money when citizens could be in a position in the future
when they have to pay higher taxes, with an increase in consumption tax
likely.
