To find the scammers, the tax department will monitor social networks

This experiment is part of the measures against tax fraud, adopted by Parliament in October.

The tax administration will soon experience monitoring of social networks to combat fraud, according to an excerpt from an interview that the Minister of Action and Public Accounts, Gérald Darmanin, has released to the M6 ​​issue.

"It will be permissive to see that if your picture was taken (…) many times, with a luxury car that you can not afford, maybe it's your cousin or your girlfriend who lent you or maybe notsays Gerald Darmanin in this interview that will be broadcast on Sunday evening in its entirety. "These are your personal accounts that will be observed by the experimentation"he said, adding that these are "Often public".

"Often public" accounts

In September, Darmanin also indicated that social media monitoring could also be used to monitor tax evasion fraud.

This experiment, which will be put in place "Probably at the start of next year", is part of the measures of the law against tax fraud, adopted in October in Parliament, which aims to provide more resources to the state to combat all forms of fraud. In particular, it establishes a tax guard, reinforces sanctions, strengthens the possibility of publicizing the names of the scammers and loosens the "Bercy lock" which gives the tax authorities a monopoly on the accusation.
