The tax office will look to detect potential evaders by cross checking the income of fans against their spending data.
The AFIP tax office will investigate Argentine football fans who travelled to Russia for the 2018 World Cup.
As was the case during the 2014 World Cup, AFIP will look to detect potential tax evaders by cross checking fans’ income and spending data.
AFIP boss Leandro Cuccioli confirmed the decision during a presentation in Argentina’s Lower House this week.
The procedure will include data collection from tourism agencies, the Immigration Department and credit cards companies.
During the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the tax office found over 100 people registered as “sole traders” whose spending activity did not align with their tax declarations.
Fans taunted the AFIP over Twitter with tweets like “AFFIP [sic] look where I am”.
