National Tax Service found 165 people suspected of tax evasion by investigating 8-year real estate transactions in the 3rd new town.

There have also been various methods of tax evasion, such as illegally trading development compensation rights, pretending to be farmed and receiving tax cuts.

This is reporter Lim Tae-woo.


Mr. A, the representative of a real estate developer, bought a'big soil compensation right' from landowners in an effort to seek profit from the development of the Gwacheon area.

If accepted, it was illegally paid for the right to receive other land in the new city instead of the compensation, but the landlords handed over the right when they said that they would give more than twice the compensation.

The landlords did not report illegal profits as income, and Mr. A paid his relatives for fake labor expenses and stole them, and all of them were subjected to tax audits.

Mr. B re-sells the farmland of the planned development land he bought, decorating it as if he were farming, to the agricultural corporation he established.

This is a misuse of a system that lowers the transfer tax when farmers sell farmland to agricultural corporations.

In the past eight years, the IRS has investigated land transactions in the third new city and found 165 tax evasion suspects.

Since the source of the funds was unclear, there were many suspected cases as expedient donations, and several planned real estates were discovered that were profitable after splitting a stake in the planned development site.

The IRS will also investigate reports that have entered the Real Estate Tax Evasion Report Center.
