Problems of classifying tax crimes by actus reus

Abstract

This article examines certain issues relating to the calculation of large and especially large amounts of unpaid taxes. It is noted that the Plenum of the Supreme Court is expected to amend current Decision No. 64 of 28.12.2006 ‘On the practices of courts applying criminal legislation on liability for tax crimes’. It is also stressed that, despite the existing obligation to pay insurance premiums, there is no rule on criminal liability of persons evading such payments. In this regard, it is proposed to include liability for failing to pay insurance premiums to the state budget funds in the disposition of Articles 198, 199 of the Criminal Code.
