Untaxed – how governments lure capital into real estate and feed the housing crisis

In this episode we take a closer look at the findings from our latest investigation series, Untaxed. At a time of rising living costs across Europe, the search for affordable housing is becoming an increasingly onerous task for millions of Europeans. Untaxed offers a timely insight into the often-overlooked role tax privileges play in shaping the housing situation across Europe.

The investigation discovered how multiple European governments give huge tax benefits to real estate investors and owners. Over the past months, Investigate Europe’s team analysed the taxation policies and loopholes given to real estate investments in several European countries. IE reporter Paulo Pena oversaw the investigation and he joins the podcast to discuss the findings.
