Spiegel reports that Georg Baselitz slipped put of town to avoid a tax raid on his German home:
The artist’s name appeared on a list of clients with the Swiss bank UBS, which was on a CD containing data on secret bank accounts bought by the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia last summer. Despite widespread media coverage of this purchase, Baselitz did not turn himself in to the tax authority — unlike the president of football club Bayern Munich, Uli Hoeness, who admitted to tax evasion in April. The bank itself has urged clients to “actively resolve their tax problems,” if need be.
