Conditionally, the presumptive income announced by the government, which will start from 10,920 euros to 14,196 euros, will be fightable.
Specifically, it will concern cases where someone is hospitalized, unemployed, studying or imprisoned.
In any case, whether someone works less or earns less, they will be taxed on the imputed income, in an effort to combat tax evasion, as a large proportion of freelancers and self-employed people declare extremely low incomes.
If someone disagrees, the solution is to request an audit from the tax office, which can however prove to be a trap, as it can be opened not only for one use but for more than one and be in for surprises.
According to information from the financial issue of Kathimerini, at the moment the economic staff of the government is not considering expanding the cases in which someone can refute the presumptions, in order to avoid the crowding of the tax offices by professionals who will provide data on lower incomes than the presumptive which the new method of taxation will provide for.

More than half of professionals declare zero income
About 85% of the self-employed declare incomes purely from self-employment and pay tax of 217 euros per year, with the amount rising to 867 with the professional fee. At the same time, the average tax of employees amounts to 1,160 euros and of pensioners to 847.
