The head of Iranian National Tax Administration says the affluent in Iran do not have tax return files or largely evade fulfilling their tax obligations.  
Reviewing banking transactions of 300,000 billionaires in Iran, Omid Ali Parsa said in a TV interview that more than half the people with income above 10 billion rials have never filed their tax returns. 
“In fact these people have no tax records in INTA,” he was quoted as saying.
Parsa added that the INTA has started identifying the tax evaders and will soon start collecting the unpaid taxes. 
The senior taxman said the initial plan is to focus on taxpayers with annual 200 billion rials ($1.7 million) income, adding that the number in this group is 4,376.
