THE tax man is coming to Spain.
Hacienda (Inland Revenue) bosses have announced new plans to crack down on offenders, with higher fines for those who pay late and new attention given to the black economy.
Tax agency boss Beatriz Viana said the government is currently owed some €6,000 million in pending tax offence cases.
She said that Spain invested just a third of the resources into tax collection of neighbouring France.
Viana said there will be harsher penalties for those who do not pay their taxes and faster systems for debt collection.
The new plan will come into force in 2013.
