America's well-known Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on Monday officially concluded a four-and-a-half-year cooperation with Greece's national economy ministry to introduce long-term structural changes and improvements in the country's tax system.
While initial projects focused on areas of auditing and revenue collection, efforts eventually grew to include improving service at local tax bureaus, conveying a clearer message to taxpayers, as well as implementing a modern management information system at the ministry, a US embassy press release noted.
"We were delighted to be of assistance when the Greek government asked us to work together in this area ... This is another example of the excellent cooperation between our two governments," US ambassador Nicholas Burns said on the occasion.
