Tax chief nominee vows to strengthen probes into tax evasion
SEJONG, President Moon Jaein's nominee to head the tax agency vowed Monday that he will strengthen probes into tax evasion and actively deal with the alleged tax dodging of content creators.
Kim hyunjun nominated by Moon last month to lead the National Tax Service made the written comments in a submission to a ruling party lawmaker ahead of a parliamentary confirmation hearing scheduled for Wednesday.
The hearing is widely seen as a formality because his formal appointment does not require approval from the National Assembly.
Kim said the tax agency has launched a probe into a content creator who uploaded videos to YouTube for alleged tax evasion. No further details were given.
