BEIJING, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Chinese police have launched an investigation into 22,800 cases of tax-related crimes involving more than 560 billion yuan (81.3 billion U.S. dollars) since 2018, the Ministry of Public Security said Wednesday.

About 90 percent of the cases involved offenses of falsely issuing exclusive value-added tax invoices, said You Xiaowen with the ministry at a press conference.

Other crimes include defrauding export tax refunds, which posed great difficulties for police investigation as well-concealed methods had been used in such illicit activities, said You.
