Eurobarometer did a survey and it turned out that Poles are super honest. The question concerned whether the respondent acquired goods or services that were not recorded in the tax system. I mean, did he buy anything on the gray market.
The highest percentage of respondents buying illegal goods or services was recorded in Malta (30 percent), the Netherlands (27 percent) and Greece (also 27 percent).
The smallest percentage of buyers of illegal goods or services was reported in Poland (5 percent), Great Britain (also 5 percent) and Germany (7 percent).
Overall, in Europe, only every tenth respondent stated that he had purchased goods or services for which he had "reasonable grounds to believe that the transaction was not reported to the tax office" - he did not receive any receipt or invoice.
From other interesting things: 50 percent EU and UK residents have confidence in tax authorities, and 49 percent declares confidence in labor inspection.
