Tax fairness to fight the bad guys, reward the good guys

Spurred by revelations of tax evasion and avoidance, the EPP Group has pressed for greater transparency to uncover companies and individuals who fail to pay their fair share of taxes. Ludek Niedermeyer, the EPP Group's author of Parliament’s final Report by the Money Laundering, Tax Avoidance and Tax Evasion Committee, says greater international exchange of tax information will help uncover tax cheats posing unfair competition to EU businesses. Dariusz Rosati, the Group’s spokesman on the same committee, says blacklists of governments failing to enforce tax laws can lose EU funding.
