Taiwanese tax dodgers faced with ‘anti-extravagance’ measures

IT SEEMS some authorities will go further than others to make tax dodgers know their behaviour is unaccetpable.

Taiwanese officials, according to AFP, have banned repeat offenders from living an extravagant lifestyle including taking taxis.

The news agency reports that anti-extravagance orders mean that tax evaders are not permitted to spend more than 2,000 Taiwanese dollars (£44) on a single item, or use expensive forms of transport, such as taxis.

A government official is quoted warning people who ignore the orders could face jail.

It is reported that several people who owe more than TW$10m (£20,000) have been subject to the orders.
