Mumbai, Oct 12 (Calcutta Tube) The Bombay High Court will soon hear a petition filed by the income tax (IT) department pertaining to a 10-year-old case involving alleged tax evasion of Rs.40 million by Bollywood actor Salman Khan.
The IT department has challenged an order of the income tax appellate tribunal which had earlier ruled in the actor’s favour. He was found to have allegedly evaded the tax during the assessment year 2000-01.
According to IT sources, Khan had declared his income as Rs.9.32 crore during 2000-01 which was later found to be Rs.13.61 crore.
Khan challenged the IT department’s assessment order before the IT commissioner (appeals) who ruled in his favour.
The IT department followed it up with an appeal before the tribunal which also ruled in Khan’s favour.
Now, the department has sought the quashing of the tribunal’s order.
