In every civilized country, every citizen is obliged to pay its taxes on income and those who try to avoid such duties are to be penalized.

Fresh pasta and the use of technology

All of us know that Al Capone didn't go to prison because of his multiple crimes and dirty businesses, but he went to prison, because the police discovered his handwritten secret accounts that had made him possible to not pay his taxes in accordance to what he earned.
He was unlucky that at that time, high edge technology had not been invented yet and, thus, it was a lot easier to catch those who tried to avoid paying their taxes. It was as easy as this to send to prison one of the most criminals of the Mafia.
However, on these days, these folks, who want to cheat on the tax man, have it a lot easier, using high edge technology to have secret accounts of their earnings in sophisticated programs that will need knowledgeable inspectors in IT to discover them.
This has been the case of a chain of Italian restaurants in Spain. Their second and secret account in an equally secret program called Fresh Pasta. has been discovered by inspectors of the Ministry of Finance.
They used this program to hide their real earnings and, thus, to cheat on the tax revenue office.
Some people will probably think they were right in so doing and that they were lucky being able to pay less taxes, if they did at all, out of the earnings of their chain restaurants, but I strongly disagree and I'm glad they've been caught as Al Capone was during his time, because his money crimes were just as bad as his blood or murder ones.
Everybody is obliged to pay taxes in accordance to their businesses and income. If there're governments that don't use public money to favour the whole of a given population, this is a different issue that all of us should demand from governments, but everybody is obliged to pay its taxes in accordance to its income.
In every country, taxes on income and earnings are necessary for a good national health system and for public education to benefit the whole of the population, for good public transport and to build a good road network as well as to spare part of them to favour to the least fortunate of citizens If there're people who are well off enough to not need a public hospital, school or university or won't use public transport, all the better for them, but not everybody has the same sound financial situation no matter how hard they work and the Welfare State is necessary, but it isn't free of charge, because all us are paying taxes compulsory, but by the looks of it, it seems that the ones who earn more are the ones to get away with their duties.
I'm glad to read that cheating on the tax revenue office, using high edge technology, is starting to be bit more difficult for the big fish that try to avoid paying taxes in accordance to their incomes.

As we can see, Genkiworld, high edge technology can be used for many things. Some of them are good, but other uses of IT are simply disgusting.
