The Customs Department will claim 4.2 billion baht in import duties for 250 luxury cars from importers as part of its effort to crack down on tax evasion.

The 250 cars are among 300 luxury vehicles seized by the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) and examined by the Customs Department to determine if they were taxed correctly, said Chaiyut Kumkun, the department's spokesman.

After the investigation, the department will require the importers to pay import duties worth 4.2 billion baht, he said.
