(ANSA) – PACHINO, June 27 – A tax damage of over 6.5 million euros in the assessment and collection of taxes by the ‘crazy bills’ issued by a private company on behalf of the Municipality of Pachino. This is what the Finance Police of the provincial command of Syracuse disputes, which denounced two people: an official of the Entity, for abuse of office, and the owner of a Tuscan company entrusted with the support service to the Tax Office for activities for the recovery of municipal revenues, for fraud on public supplies.
The official and 14 other people were reported to the Court of Auditors. The case in which a three-year-old child was the recipient of a tax claim of approximately 11 thousand euros for the tax years from 2015 to 2019 is emblematic.
The investigation was carried out by the financiers of the provincial command of Syracuse. The soldiers of the Tenenza di Pachino, directed by Lieutenant Carmelo Lombardo, checked, for the period 2014-2019, the procedures adopted by the Municipality of Pachino for the management of local taxes (Imu-Tasi-Tari), finding, we read in a note delle Fiamme Gialle, “numerous notices of assessment lapsed due to the notification deadlines that generated a loss of income in the municipal coffers for several million euros”. The activity of the financiers, “supported by feedback on the recipients of the notices of assessment”, disputes the accusation, would have made it possible to “detect the existence for the 2014-2019 tax years of ‘crazy folders'”. It would have emerged that the external company entrusted with the support service to the tax office for the recovery of municipal revenues would have “produced numerous executive assessments for several million euros, subsequently subject to cancellation or rectification, reporting non-existent or excess tax debts the amount due “.
