Afridi, Younis Khan among top Pak cricketers facing massive tax bills
London, Nov. 3 (ANI): Pakistani cricketers Shahid Afridi and Younis Khan are among top four players facing tax demands totaling upto 80 million rupees, according to a report.
Afridi and Khan along with Abdul Razzaq and Umar Akmal have now been given two weeks by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to pay up or face penalties.
"The notices have been served on these four players as they didn't pay taxes on income they earned from commercials, their annual contracts and other sources which is around 80m rupees," the BBC quoted an FBR spokesman, as saying.
According to the report, the spokesman went on to say that the similar warnings over 'unpaid tax' were given to team mates Misbah-ul-Haq, Mohammad Hafeez, Wahab Riaz, Umar Akmal, Azhar Ali, and Taufeeq Umar, earlier this year.
Top cricketers are among Pakistan's high earners, able to command monthly salaries of 313,000 rupees, the report said. (ANI)
