In addition, the Import-Export Tax Department is assigned to review and propose the General Department to direct the post-customs clearance audit unit, the inspection unit, the investigation and anti-smuggling unit to take professional measures to handle cases showing signs of fraud of classification when the goods have gone through customs clearance.

For the work of tax exemption, reduction, refund, and non-collection, the Import-Export Tax Department is assigned to review and direct local Customs Departments to inspect those who are subject to tax exemption, reduction, refund, non-collection and fail to tax payment; direct the units to assess risks, conduct an inspection at the taxpayer's headquarters after tax refund to promptly detect and handle cases of fraud and profiteering in the form of refund before inspection; focus on reviewing and firmly grasping the tax debt situation of local customs departments, the Post-Clearance Audit Department; and direct the classification and handling of debt groups.
