Tens of thousands of company car drivers face fines from the tax office for using their cars for more private journeys than they admit, the AD reports on Monday.
The paper says the total amount the tax office expects to levy in fines could mount up to €200m.
The tax office controls focus on some 200,000 company car drivers who claim not to drive more than 500 kilometres a year privately.
The department has been using special spy cars to monitor drivers’ behaviour. Of the first 5,500 cars checked, 17% drove more than the official private kilometre claim, the paper says
