    (ANA-MPA) -- ‘ax evasion in the country totaled 30 billion euros annually, a sum far exceeding the state budget's deficit this year, a report by the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) announced on Wednesday.

    The Federation‚s report, based on figures published by the finance ministry for the year 2007, said that government efforts to collect 20 billion euros from tax evaders could either cut taxpayers‚ taxes by around 30 pct, erase the country‚s fiscal problem or allowing a combination of both. The report also noted that wage earners and pensioners accounted for 74 pct of total income, while self occupied people only 4.0 pct and 99.5 pct of enterprises paid an annual tax of 6.100 euros on average.
