Recently, actors Vijay and Dhanush's cases on seeking entry tax exemption for their imported Rolls-Royce car was dismissed. Judge SM Subramaniam fined Vijay Rs 1 lakh and asked him to pay the entry tax. Similarly, Dhanush was also asked to pay the full entry tax. On top of it, the judge passed some scathing remarks on the two stars. Now, Suriya's plea against the Income Tax Department order has been dismissed by SM Subramaniam. Suriya's properties were raided in the year 2010 and were asked to pay a whopping Rs three core even lakh and 96 thousand for the three financial years 2007-2008 and 2008 2009.
Suriya approached Madras High Court in 2018 seeking an exemption to pay the interest and accused the Income Tax department of delaying the case by three years. His counsel argued that he is a regular taxpayer with no defaults. Clarifying the issue, producer Rajsekar Pandian of 2Entertainment took to Twitter and wrote, "ITax and Interest thereon were paid and adjusted in totality with absolute cooperation, as on today there are no dues payable from our side! The dispute is only regarding the refund of Interest by the department! The appeal will be preferred on receipt and perusal of the original order."
