"In order to avoid these rumors, who does what, and how," he said. "I am not a customs officer or a tax service employee, I'm an investment banker. I think that someone shall continue work in a professional manner. I believe that the team at the SFC (State Fiscal Service - ed.) is formed well . Arsenii Petrovych, if you allow me, I would like to resign as the head of the service," he said.
Bilous called on the prime minister to appoint a professional taxman in his place, who would be able to reform the tax and service sector.
"Based on the results of the investigation, the government shall decide on the dismissal of the first deputy head of the SFC - head of the tax police Khomenko and deputy head of service - head of Customs Makarenko. We respect the desire of the head of the service, and the government accepts the resignation of Bilous," he said.
Yatseniuk noted that he is sympathetic to Bilous' desire to resign.
"I respect your human and professional position, it is a sign of a new quality in the government," Yatseniuk said.
When making the decision, the prime minister listed a number of violations and abuses in the service.
In late February Yatseniuk decided to start an official investigation against the management of the Fiscal Service and suspended them from duties.
Maksym Mokliak has been appointed acting head of the Fiscal Service.
