Times have changed, supposedly, and tax evasion, once considered the hobby of the wealthy, would no longer be tolerated by public opinion. One thing is certain: the state has considerably strengthened its legal arsenal to sanction tax faults and French courts seem to be in a race for the harshest punishment. Prison sentences for people with a clean criminal record are increasing.
This ultra-repressive trend takes place in a context of budgetary stress for the French budget: the needs of the public sector increase while taxpayers, especially in the digital economy, are less easily framed into strictly national tax boundaries.
The state has answers: all-out files on taxpayers, access to big data (Facebook and Instagram accounts are under fiscal surveillance) and increased use of more aggressive procedures (searches and assets freeze, more systematic complaints for tax fraud).
Business owners and individuals should be aware of this tax risk and not hesitate to seek an informed opinion on their professional and financial situation from a tax expert.
