Tax management and tax evasion represent an intrinsic element of ecomic turver, an area of interest both to the institutional and to the real spheres of national ecomy. These problems, beyond any doubt, should become the focus of interest for all states having a common market, e.g. the European Union, or the countries which have t introduced the universally binding and which are highly susceptible to abuses in VAT tax - such as the United States. With this in mind, the authors of this volume outline the issues of managing taxes and tax evasion, with a focus on the European Union in general and Poland in particular. The choice did t come by accident, since the latter was the only EU member state which in the waning years of the still continuing ecomic crisis never fell into negative ecomic growth.
