Title: ‘Champions’ in Tax Evasion

Ionian Islands ‘Champions’ in Tax Evasion

Official statistics show that the Ionian islands of Corfu, Zakynthos and Kefalonia have earned the rather unflattering title of tax-evasion champions.

Figures from the Independent Authority for Public Revenue reveal that in the island of Corfu, for example, 59% of businesses inspected were found to be evading tax.

Zakynthos followed with 34%, and Kefalonia with 32%.

It is surprising that instances of tax-evasion were much lower in the tourist hubs of the Aegean, such as the islands of Mykonos, Santorini and Paros.
