The Greek tax authorities are really destroying any semblance of a free society all to satisfy the EU. Tax agents have been pretending to rent houses for a vacation and then monitoring if the people pay taxes. The government is pro-actively sending out people to do business and they are looking to see what you do. God help you if you do not report finding €10 in the parking lot. The Greek people have gotten NOTHING out of the Euro. Had they stayed out of the Euro, tourism would be up for it would be the cheap place to go, although it has finally risen 8% in 2017 as the cold weather in the north has sent Europeans fleeing to the sun. As tourism hit a record high, the tax man wants their action.
