The Directorate General of Taxation plans to investigate more than 1,000 taxpayers who stand accused of tax evasion.

Among them, are participants of the governments nine-month tax amnesty, investigation and tax collection director Angin Prayitno Aji said on Wednesday as reported by kompas.com.

The list includes several “big fish,” he added.

The tax office, he said, had evidence on tax amnesty participants who had failed to comprehensively report their wealth and would, therefore, be investigated.

 “We have actually warned the taxpayers that they have to pay large amounts of money,” said Angin, adding that investigators had also discovered forgeries of tax invoices. (bbn)
