State Comptroller, Micha Lindenstrauss, states in his annual report, that while various sectors in society do not pay the full tax they owe, the tax authority is negligent. Individuals who got away from paying taxes, also avoided confiscation by the Execution Office, due to deficiencies in the work of the tax authority. Among other things, confiscators failed to go after debtors who lived in certain areas, for fear of violent reaction; and sometimes they were dispatched to the wrong address, due to outdated records.
