Special Taxation Inspectorate (STI)

The Special Taxation Inspectorate (STI) is one of the six general administration bodies within the Belgian Federal Public Service (FPS) Finance. It is tasked with the structured combating of fraud in all of the taxes that fall under the authority of that FPS. The STI officials have investigatory powers for all these taxes and can therefore take all special legal auditing options in this regard. This makes the STI the preferred partner of the judicial detectives.
