Tax authorities spider the web in search of fraud

Two days ago I blogged about how the Swedish National Tax Board is investigating new areas where there is a risk that individuals have income that they withhold from taxation, one of these areas being blogging. Now it doesn’t seem that blogging has become such a big problem yet. Of the total of 420 million kronor that the investigation found were withheld from taxation, 59.9 million were found in the category that include as diverse areas such as:

Dating, SEO services, international web services, internet- and SMS loans, blogs, astrology, electronics/satellite tv, weight control/gym products.

In total, the tax authorities say they have 156 million kronor to claim in taxes.

Bloggers should be aware that tax authorities are looking into the area and that they actually are spidering web sites to find suspects.
