OSAKA — Two affiliates of Hanshin Expressway Public Corp. spent more than 2 million yen for entertainment, accounting for it as conference expenses, and 1.5 million yen in private taxi fares for business purposes, Osaka Regional Tax Bureau sources said Tuesday.

As a result of bureau tax probes of all public corporation affiliates, Hanshin Highway Corp. and Hanshin Road Service Corp. have been ordered to report about 20 million yen in income unreported over three years, the sources said. The two companies are entrusted by the public corporation with work such as collecting expressway tolls, and all of their board members are from the public corporation.
