The FINANCIAL -- Tax evasion in modern Georgia is as old as the practice of collecting taxes itself. They emerged simultaneously in both criminal code and in the minds of regular citizens less than 25 years ago, when we, together with 14 other contingent republics of the Soviet Union gave up building communism and embraced the market economy. However, the opposite is true when it comes to accepting or giving bribes – they are as old as a human kind.
