People can be blocked from leaving China if they owe more than 100,000 yuan ($14,616) in taxes starting next month, Xinhua reports.

That’s one-tenth the previous threshold of 1 million yuan.

High-profile tax evaders like movie star Fan Bingbing have been the most notable targets of tax-evasion laws so far, but the new threshold could even snag someone with a relatively modest monthly income of around 20,000 yuan who hasn’t coughed up taxes in a couple years.

The change is part of China’s ongoing overhaul of its tax system and a recent crackdown on tax evasion. A new individual income-tax system that widens the country’s lower tax brackets and requires some foreigners to pay higher taxes is set to take effect next year.
