China has rooted out 681 corrupt officials who breach laws and disciplines of the taxation system last year and 87 of them will face criminal punishment, said an official with the State Administration of Taxation Sunday.

The discipline inspection and supervision departments within the national taxation system has accepted 7,026 petition cases in 2004; 488 were filed for investigation.

An leading official spoke at a national meeting on anti- corruption work within the system, noting that the prosecution of these officials is the result to the system's tightening control over illegal activities in the past year.

This year, the official said, the system will further concentrate on the control and supervision tax collection and " promoting more open operations when dealing daily businesses."
