To fight against tax fraud, the tax authorities will monitor social networks

We will have to stop bragging on the social networks under pain of being redressed by the tax authorities. In the issue of Capital M6, broadcast Sunday, November 10, the Minister of Action and Public Accounts, Gerald Darmanin, reveals that the tax administration will experiment from the beginning of 2019 the monitoring of social networks for help him fight against tax fraud. "There will be the permissiveness to see that if you have your picture taken (…) many times, with a luxury car that you can not afford to do, maybe it's your cousin or your friend who lent it to you, or maybe not, "says Gérald Darmanin in this interview which will be broadcast Sunday evening in its entirety. "These are your personal accounts that will be watched by experimentation," he said, adding that they are "often public". Additional leverage among others In September, Gérald Darmanin also indicated that monitoring social networks could also be used to detect tax evasion fraud. This experiment, which will be set up "probably at the beginning of next year", is part of the measures of the law against tax fraud, adopted last month in Parliament, which aims to give more resources to the State to fight all forms of fraud. In particular, it sets up a tax police, reinforces the sanctions, reinforces the possibility of publicizing the names of the fraudsters and loosens the "lock of Bercy" which confers on the tax authorities the monopoly of the lawsuits.
