Greek Authorities To Launch Mass Confiscation Of Safe Deposit Boxes, Securities, Homes In Tax-Evasion Crackdown

Tyler Durden – May 22, 2017

Last week, the Greek parliament once again approved more austerity to unlock withheld Greek bailout funds in Brussels: a symbolic move, which has little impact without any actual follow through, like for example, actually imposing austerity. And while Greeks have been very good in the former (i.e. promises), they have been severely lacking in the latter (i.e. delivery).

That may be changing. According to Kathimerini, Greek Finance Ministry inspectors are about to start seeking out the owners of all local undeclared properties, while the law will be amended to allow for financial products and the content of safe deposit boxes to be confiscated electronically. The plan for the identification of taxpayers who have “forgotten” to declare their properties to the tax authorities is expected to be ready by year-end, according to the timetable of the Independent Authority for Public Revenue.

What follows then will be a wholesale confiscation by the government of any asset whose source, origins and funding can not be explained.

Comment: John Durrad

When the people allow humans to rule over them instead of the King of the Universe, living cost can become expensive.  The King of the Universe charges just 10% “income tax” across the board.  No matter what you earn, only 10% is demanded by God.  The Bible calls it a tithe.  Human rulers though can, and do, extract much more than this from their subjects.

“And Jehoiakim gave the silver and the gold to Pharaoh; but he taxed the land to give the money according to the commandment of Pharaoh: (not God’s commandment) he exacted the silver and gold of the people of the land, of every one according to his taxation, to give it unto Pharaoh-nechoh.

Jehoiakim was twenty and five years old when he began his reign…

And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done.”   2 kings 24:35-37

If only people realised that living cost would be a lot less if they trusted God!
