We are looking more askance at the eastern european black work than Danish

Citizens look milder in undeclared work than other forms of tax evasion. However, mainly if the tradesman is Danish.

It is in the higher degree in the order, if a Danish craftsman get the black money to lay new tiled floors or put a wall up, than if an eastern european craftsman to do the same.

It is similar the respondents in a new study from the Rockwool Foundation, writes Jyllands-Posten.

In the study are 1600 people have been asked for their attitude to various forms of tax evasion.

Three out of four of the respondents replies that it is unacceptable to cheat in tax. However, not all of which throw the black work in the category skattefusk, writes the newspaper.

While one in four think it is okay, if a Danish craftsman earns 1500 dollars black each month, only nine percent find it acceptable, if an eastern european craftsman to do the same.

According to Peer Ebbesen Skov, one of the researchers behind the study, the result may be due to respondents thinking that the aliens are leaving the country again and thus - in contrast to the danes - do not pay tax in Denmark through the entire life.

- A possible bid could be that the think that a Danish craftsman's seen over a lifetime have a firmer attachment to the Danish labour market and thus contribute more to the treasury, and on the way, perhaps you can better accept the black work, he says to Ritzau.

In 2018, made the Danish Construction association in cooperation with the Rockwool Foundation and Danish Statistics an inventory, which showed that the treasury misses out of over 70 billion dollars a year in lost tax revenue because of the black work.

general, rasmussen, Morten Bødskov (S) look with severity on the outcome of the investigation.

- Performs black work, you are on the wrong side, and so it is really absolutely no matter, where you come from, or what background you have, he says to the newspaper.
