Venezuela's tax office has imposed a $233 million fine on the nation's state-run gas company for irregularities in its value-added tax.
Tax office President Jose Vielma Mora told reporters the fine is the largest ever imposed on a Venezuelan company.
The tax office monitors all private, public and joint companies in Venezuela for bookkeeping irregularities.
Venezuela's Daily News reports the company was penalized for out-of-date and missing invoicing, improper record keeping and lack of direct reporting on value-added tax returns.
