Surveillance intensifies listing of assets and collection of large debtors

Throughout 2012 the IRS went after more than 5 million taxpayers who were U.S. $ 143 billion dollars. The charges resulted in immediate recovery of $ 45 billion. In 2011, the charge was R $ 82.7 billion, with recovery of about $ 40 billion.

Even recovering less in proportion to recovery - the percentage last year was 31%, against 48% in 2011 - the recipe indicates that intensified the collection in various modalities and strategies that recovery will be intensified throughout 2013.

Among the actions taken last year, the secretary of revenue and attendance, Roberto Carlos Occaso, highlighted the increase in enrollment of assets, a mechanism the IRS that identifies the debtor\'s assets. The total number enrolled increased 46.4%, to $ 28.29 billion.

Every time the liability of the taxpayer exceeds 30% of its equity or line of U.S. $ 2 million, the IRS initiates a procedure for the identification of assets and the enrollment is made of the goods and notice of the bureau to guarantee the tax credit. When it is identified that the equity is not sufficient to provide security is proposed which seeks an injunction asking the unavailability of goods. 

According Occaso, another measure intensified last year was the collection of large debtors. In September last year, the IRS launched a plan to charge $ 86 billion, and more than 40% of this value was 317 taxpayers. The result of this operation is to be displayed at the end of March, because the billing cycle, according to the secretary is approximately six months.

For 2013, the oversight over these large debtors will be intensified. Occaso explained that selections will be made quarterly to identify illegal. Now in January has been reported 184 taxpayers who owe £ 6.8 billion. Revenue is also improving all its information technology systems that automatically seek goods and direct debit networks of internal and external data, as Renavam, Anac, and Navy Electronic Registration of Real Estate.

Occaso also said being unleashed a special operation to prevent fraud with public foreign debt securities. In partnership with prosecutors, the IRS will step up identification of these securities fraudsters that are used in operations for the payment of tax abatement - are generally used false headers or outside of maturity. The fines can reach 225% of the value of the fraud and the defendants can respond by criminally unlawful.
