Report on MetaData “Scarface” Capone and Potential New Axis of Evil

If a key recommendation of a parliamentary inquiry is implemented, the Australian Taxation Office will able to gain warrant-free access to so-called 'metadata' retained under the government's data retention scheme. The bipartisan report of the Parliament Joint Committee on Law Enforcement's inquiry into financial related crime was tabled today Data retention tax office should get metadata

Michael Inglis The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Law Enforcement has just handed down its report on the inquiry into financial-related crime, and that report will have been read very carefully by a number of commonwealth agencies, including the Australian Taxation Office.

What do “Scarface” Capone and a tax audit have to do with each other? They actually do have a bit of a connection. Scarface went to prison for TAX EVASION! Yup, not murder. Not racketeering. (Not sure if that was even on the books then.) Not gambling. You would never guess that charge and conviction for someone with as impressive of a criminal resume as you can find in the 20th century. But alas, the vicious gangster was sent to prison for eleven years for a tax crime.

LAHORE: (Web Desk) –Only 03% of Pakistanis, or a mere 500,000 individuals, pay direct tax, according to a report by advocacy group Research and Advocacy for the Advancement of Allied Reforms (RAFTAAR) 
Either due to mistrust or owing to the lack of knowledge among the common people of Pakistan, the number of Pakistanis who pay taxes is just around 500,000 which makes only 0.3% of the country’s population. Another 400,000 file their returns according to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) data but declare that they don’t have any taxable income. More people on airplanes right now than taxpayers in Pakistan

Unworthy ally in Pakistan

A torn Iraqi driver's license bearing the photo of a man with a Saddam-style mustache, another one with a scarfed woman displaying a shy smile. Documents scattered only metres from Serbia's border with Hungary provide evidence that many of the migrants flooding Europe to escape war or poverty are scrapping their true nationalities and likely assuming new ones, just as they enter the European Union Economic migrants playing Syria Roulette : Pakistani identity card in the bushes, a Bangladeshi one in a cornfield
