Tax cheats cost us 15 times more than benefit fraudsters

Tax cheats like Jaswant Raykanda cost us 15 times more than benefit fraudsters - Investigations .

The Mirror states the obvious: tax cheats cost maybe a billion a year. Tax cheats cost many, many times more.

They have got the ratio wrong: it's much more than 15 times more - and I'll be publishing more on that soon I hope.

But this begs the question - why the costly emphasis on benefits when tax evaders are getting away with vastly more? This is mismanagement.
