Greece may charge to use ATMs to discourage tax evasion

Greece is considering charging bank customers to use ATMs, to discourage the use of tax evasion by paying cash.

The levy is among possible measures announced by the country's finance minister to help Greece's failing economy.

Athens is also looking into allowing residents to declare any money hidden abroad and pay their taxes, while avoiding tougher punishments.
