Years of corruption and State Capture make some taxpayers feel morally justified to commit tax fraud, warns Edward Kieswetter.

We must unapologetically recapture our State… incalculable the damage that State Capture has caused… I’ve seen the culture of fear and intimidation at Sars…

Edward Kieswetter, Commissioner - South African Revenue Service

A tax revolt may be imminent, warned Sars commissioner Edward Kieswetter on Monday.

Corruption and a lack of trust in the tax collector are leading to fraudulent tax avoidance, said Kieswetter.

When public trust wanes, as is the current case, then taxpayers feel morally justified to withhold or manipulate their taxes
