Pistorius: All taxes met, says family

2013-05-27 00:00

OSCAR Pistorius has met all his tax obligations.

This was the statement from Arnold Pistorius, delivered by family spokesperson Anneliese Burgess, after reports this weekend that his nephew must pay a fine to the SA Revenue Services (SARS).

Sister paper City Press has learnt that SARS discovered undeclared taxes when they audited him, and issued Pistorius with a penalty “of less than R1 million”, which he allegedly paid. The receiver had reportedly been studying Pistorius’s income after he told the Pretoria magistrate court in February that he earns some R5,6 million per year.

Pistorius was released on bail of R1 million on a charge of murdering model Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius is scheduled to appear in court again on June 4.

The state is expected to ask for a postponement for further investigation.
