Johannesburg - Claims have surfaced that the man who bought Julius Malema's half-built mansion in Sandown is accused of tax fraud himself, the SA Revenue Service (Sars) said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson Adrian Lackay confirmed that the matter had been reported to Sars.

"It will be referred to appropriate channels within Sars in order to establish if there is merit to the claims."

Lackay said the matter was reported to Sars on 22 August.

The Sowetan newspaper reported that Norman Tloubatla allegedly fabricated invoices to evade tax.

Tloubatla's companies - Lethlabile Civils, and Magnified Designs, a road signs manufacturing company - received a letter of demand from Power Forklift Hire and Sales' attorneys for a R4 095 582 debt, the newspaper reported.

Tloubatla bought Malema's unfinished house on auction in May for R5.9m.
