About this paper
Tax evasion is the largest economic crime in the world (in terms of global monetary loss), costing trillions of dollars to governments around the globe. Traditional rules-based systems and one-off investigations are not enough to close the tax gap, especially when fraudsters use sophisticated schemes.
Advances in high-performance analytics have given government agencies new power to tackle the problem. This paper presents highlights of a webinar on the topic, sponsored by SAS and hosted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. These insights from tax authorities apply to different types of fraud in other industries as well.
