The celebrities always want to be in the news because this increases their market share. Some of them are willing to do anything for this. Some believe in just commenting against others while some believes in performing well from others. And some times, the situation arises automatically like we can say the situation of paying Income Tax.
We can say it is also the new competition among the celebrities that who will pay the highest tax. You might be thinking that the name in bollywood for highest tax payee would be Shah Rukh Khan or Aamir Khan. But according to the current news, this time the credit goes to our action hero Akshay Kumar. Akki is the man who has paid the advance tax of Rs 4.5 crore, which is highest than that paid by any other celebrity in Bollywood.
Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan and even Bollywood King Shah Rukh come next following Akshay Kumar by paying Rs 3.5 crore each approximately. After these Bollywood stars, Dabang starrer Salman Khan comes who paid a payment of Rs 2.5 crore as advance tax to ITR Department. The next names which come in list are Ranbir Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan paying approximately an amount of Rs 1.8 crore to Income Tax Department of India.
Generally it’s seen that many top-class people like celebs, politicians and top industrialists try to save their Income Tax and are often raided by the ITR department claming that they are stealing the taxes from government. But now it seems that these people, atleast the stars are becoming serious to pay right money in the form of taxes to Indian govt. In this way, they are gaining publicity also and that too free of cost :).
In 1980s, Big B also topped this list many a times but due to recent hits of Akshay, he has earned a lot of money and to save himself from being raided by the ITR Authorities, he has made a right decision to pay the right taxes to country on right time.
