“Instead of chasing taxpayers, we must encourage them to invest, and to invest in Portugal”.
Jornal Público, April 2, 2019

The Tax Authority is onto them.” This is how the issue of 28.03.2019 of PÚBLICO announces that the Tax Authority has identified 868 taxpayers with more than 750,000 euros of income or more than five million assets who join the 758 citizens already on the Tax Authority list of major taxpayers. The immediate reading is that we are facing a gang full of Bin Ladens that is going to finally be caught and punished – which certainly contrasts with the information that most of the new contingent consists of spouses of people already on the list. Being married has now put people under surveillance, it may have even become a crime!
