Letter to Commission on tax law

A group of Green MEPs have written an open letter to Pierre Moscovici, European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, challenging him to launch infringement proceedings following an admission by Belgium that it disregarded EU law obligations over exchange of information on tax.

The Green group claim that since the late 1970s member states are obliged to exchange information concerning egregious rulings. Belgium admitted it disregarded EU law obligations, and implicitly stated that other member states had not exchanged information either.
