Figures by the Tax Directorate indicate that income from tax inspections has been increasing since 2007, despite a 20-percent fall in the number of such inspections. Tax inspectors imposed additional taxes amounting to an average of €265,000 in 2009, up from €105,000 in 2004. Meanwhile, €22,000 in tax was imposed per inspection last year, a sharp increase from €8,000 in 2004.
