A samsar was punished after he sold no less than 85 cars without declaring his income to the tax office. Now, the authorities are asking for their money, so the samsar has to pay the state over 60,000 euros. In addition, he faces years in prison.

Two things are certain, he says: death and taxes. With a significant margin of error in the case of the latter, especially in Romania. This is what a car samsar from Pitești relied on, which had a rather fruitful activity between 2011 and 2017. Or at least that’s what the tax authorities in Argeș County say.
The case investigated by the police in Pitesti is a warning for those who believe they can get rid of paying taxes, or who rely on the prescription of payment obligations. It seems that in the case of the man from Pitesti, these calculations did not bear fruit. On January 11, the police completed the investigations under the aspect of committing the crime of tax evasion in a continuous form, and the file was submitted to the Prosecutor’s Office attached to the Argeş Tribunal.
“From the research it was established that in the period 2011 – 2017, without organizing his commercial activity in a legal form, a 45-year-old man from Pitesti would have hidden the taxable or taxable source of income, by carrying out commercial activities, consisting in the purchase and resale of a number of 85 used cars “, states IPJ Argeș.
Samsar punished for tax evasion. The risks are great
During this period, the man performed dozens of transactions, with a total value of almost 3.5 million lei, and the fiscal obligations related to the transactions were approximately 300,000 lei.
“More precisely, by exceeding the special exemption ceiling (35,000 euros) starting with 2011, the man had the obligation to register for VAT purposes, to keep records of deliveries and purchases, to file tax returns and to pays the fiscal obligations, the total value of the 85 transactions being of almost 3,500,000 lei, from which it obtained incomes without declaring and pays the afferent fiscal obligations, calculated at approximately 300,000 lei ”, it is also shown in the communiqué of IPJ Argeş.
In order to recover the damage, precautionary measures were instituted. In addition, the samsar faces a sentence of between 7 and 13 years in prison. This can be reduced by half if the samsar will pay the entire damage of 300,000 lei. It is almost impossible to do this, given that it has already seized property and accounts.
The police recently organized a large-scale action to detect the samsars of tax evasion cars. For this, the police used an ingenious method that made the samsari fall into the trap easily. It remains to be seen how long it will work, but given the value of the cars sold by the samsari, it is possible that the temptation will be greater than the fear of punishment.
