Sounds like he is in deep shiz!
Paul Hogan of the Crocodile Dundee movies says he can't afford to pay even 10 percent of what the Australian Tax Office says he owes in back taxes!
Tax authorities claim that Hogan owes tax on 38 million Australian dollars, but Hogan is denying that he is a tax evader. He explains:
“I actually came out here at the request of the Australian Crime Commission at my own time and expense to assist them with their inquires. If I was a tax evader, which I’m not, I must be the dumbest one in the world, because they gave me five years notice that they have seized every piece of paper that my tax advisers and lawyers and accountants have ever had. I kept coming back here.
“I can’t pay 10 percent of what they’re asking. I know they’re absolutely desperate to nail some high-profile character with money to justify the expense to the taxpayer."
Hogan has been served with an Australian Taxation Office order preventing him from leaving Australia until he settles the tax bill.
