Spain: Fight against fraud brought $37.84 billion
Those are "the best figures ever" to be posted by the Spanish Tax Agency. Rajoy added that, according to the Spanish National Statistics Institute (INE), 2.89 billion euros have been collected in the first quarter of 2015.
The President of the Government also highlighted other figures. Between 2012 and 2014, the fight against fraud led to the collection of 34.79 billion euros - the best result ever in the history of the AEAT. Along the same lines, he went on to add that, according to the INE, a total of 2.89 billion euros have been collected in the first quarter of 2015.
Besides explaining that the tax regularisation process "neither wipes clean nor deletes offences", Mariano Rajoy stressed that he will not release data on any taxpayer, just as the previous governments did not in compliance with their obligation. ■
