In light of the news that hip hop giant, Cassper Nyovest was caught for not paying his taxes recently, Briefly.co.za put together a list of 6 Mzansi celebrities who have been in trouble with SARS in the past.
Most celebrities make a lot of money, but for some odd reason they prefer to keep it to themselves, and have chosen not to pay their due taxes.
Most wait until they get hunted down by the South African Revenue Services (SARS) for unpaid taxes.
Briefly.co.za named 6 Mzansi celebrities who have been in trouble with the taxman in recent years to date. Take a look below.
1. Cassper Nyovest
Cassper Nyovest's company, Family Tree, is the latest to be targeted by the taxman for unpaid income tax. Cassper has a heavy income tax bill of R3.6million to settle before the start of the next tax season.
2. Bonang Matheba
Last year, Bonang Matheba was charged for dodging personal taxes for 10 years from 2007 to 2017 as well as company tax from 2014 to 2017.
It is believed that the rapper AKA was owing SARS over R2million in 2017.
4. Katlego Danke
Katlego Danke is said to have failed to submit her personal tax returns for 6 years in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. We hope that she is finally caught up now.
5. Teko Modise
Modise did a foot over on the taxman after he failed to submit his returns for 5 years in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
6. Jomo Sono
Three weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Jomo Sono is running the risk of losing his assets after SARS obtained a judgment against him to attach his belongings. The football icon allegedly failed to pay a R40 million tax bill from 2018.
The South Gauteng High Court has granted the South African Revenue Services permission to attach Jomo Sono's assets. This follows the football icon's failure to pay a hefty R40 million tax bill imposed on him in 2018. Sono has allegedly not honored an agreement with SARS to pay the millions he owes.
The Jomo Cosmos have been included in the judgment with SARS having previously obtained a writ of execution to attach both their and their bosses assets.
