BELGRADE - We will introduce tougher tax evasion fines in 2017, and as far as the state can reach, everyone will understand that fraud, theft or robbing the state do not pay off, Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic said during a visit to the Tax Administration on Wednesday.

If you have been wondering how someone on an average salary can drive a good car and have an enormous flat, you need to know they have that because they have been taking from all of us, Vucic said.

Our plan is to collect taxes even more assiduously, Vucic said, adding that the Tax Administration was recruiting a significant number of professionals because the percentage of the grey economy was still large and the tax evasion rate was also unacceptably high.

The 2016 tax revenue projection was 711 bln dinars, with 768 bln collected thus far, which is 8 pct more than planned, he said.
