In yet another unmistakable sign of we’re not exactly sure, a grocery store operating in the county jail of Bács-Kiskun was raided by tax collectors after they received an anonymous tip-off from inside the joint that the store was engaged in a massive tax-evasion scheme.
Inmates do their weekly grocery shopping at the store with coupons bought by their relatives during official family visits. The owners got busted because they kept the sales figures in a “checkered exercise book” under the counter, which showed the store had dodged Ft 6 million (roughly €20,000) in taxes over just the past year and a half. On the bright side, once they are imprisoned they will probably know of all kinds of way to make extra cash on the side, and won’t have to commute to work anymore. [index.hu]
