On Dec 20, the tax authorities released the result of their punishment for online anchor Huang Wei (Weiya) for evading taxes. Huang evaded taxes by concealing her personal income and falsifying the nature of her business, and was fined 1.341 billion yuan. In a letter of apology, Viya said she would actively raise funds to pay the taxes, late fees and fines within the specified time (ccTV.com reported on December 20).

In recent years, the emerging live broadcasting economy has developed vigorously, and many network anchors have become popular. In front of live broadcasting, anchors have even become the guarantee of quality and reputation. However, some anchors fail to shoulder the social responsibility that comes with flow and influence. Before have snow pear, Lin Shan shan, after wei ya, oneself earn basin full bowl full also greedy, start to cheat taxes. Its behavior not only violates the individual income tax law, tax collection and administration Law and other relevant laws and regulations, but also breaks the bottom line and seriously affects the legal fairness of the tax environment.

Why anchor industry become tax evasion focus explosion? This may be related to the lack of self-discipline of network anchors and the existence of blind spots in industry supervision. On the one hand, under the thinking of "quick cash" and "flow economy" in the live broadcast industry, some anchors and related employees are blinded by money and have weak law-abiding consciousness. They deliberately hide their grey income, evade taxes, and even seek "high-level people" to plan and operate, thus endangering national tax security. On the other hand, network anchors have diversified income, complex capital flow and no entity business place, which often leads to unclear territorial supervision responsibilities. In addition, some platform enterprises' imperfect tax-related information reporting system leaves loopholes such as hidden income and false declaration, which makes it difficult for tax authorities to accurately grasp the real income information of network anchors and makes it difficult to supervise them. According to the report from the tax department, Weiya's tax evasion activities include hiding the commission income of livestreaming platform, converting the commission and pit fee into business income to falsely declare tax evasion, etc.

It is the duty of every citizen to pay taxes, which is the key to ensure the financial stability of the country and adequate public service resources. Anchors and practitioners who know the law and break the law and are greedy must be severely punished and the mice who steal oil must be driven away. First of all, as high-income people and public figures, the head network anchors must improve their law-abiding awareness and sense of social responsibility, strengthen self-discipline, pay taxes in accordance with the law, and take goods in good faith. Secondly, platform enterprises must have a clear understanding of their regulatory responsibilities. On the one hand, they must timely report the real information, income and tax withholding of anchors, so that the income of anchors can be calculated more clearly. On the other hand, platform enterprises should strengthen the education of abiding by law for anchors, guide them to pay taxes in accordance with the law, and resolutely "ban" anchors from broadcasting their bad behaviors that do not change. Moreover, relevant regulatory authorities need to further strengthen tax supervision of the live broadcasting industry, introduce targeted professional and standardized accounting methods, and make full use of tax big data and other technical means to strengthen revenue supervision, so as not to let any tax slip away.

China's tax collection and Administration Law clearly stipulates that tax evasion on taxpayers shall be pursued by the tax authorities for the unpaid or underpaid tax, late fee and a fine of more than 50 percent and less than five times of the unpaid or underpaid tax. The punishment of Viya once again shows the intensity of China's crackdown on tax evasion. I believe that this "tax inspection storm" will make more anchors alert, network broadcast is not outside the law, there is no celebrity before the law, evasion of tax obligations must be severely punished! The fable of "greedy snake swallowing elephant" has been played out in reality, and anyone who tries to "hide and seek" in taxation will eventually be punished by the law.
