Oscar gets huge fine for unpaid tax

2013-05-26 09:16

Pretoria – Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has been given a fine of hundreds of thousands of rands due to unpaid tax.

This came after Sars looked into the athlete’s financial affairs following his bail application in February when it was revealed in court that he earned about R5.6m per year, reported Rapport.

The fine was apparently “less than a million” and Pistorius is said to have already paid it.

Since he shot and killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day, his finances have taken a knock as two of his biggest sponsors have broken ties with him and he no longer competes at athletic events.

He was released on bail of R1m.

He is due to again appear in court on 4 June to face a charge of murder.

He reportedly sold a house in Johannesburg earlier this year for R9.8m.

    Him and his brother immune against the law it seems.

      Mopeli Dikeledi - 2013-05-26 09:37

      Wats de point of des story?? M so lost.

      Bryan Culross - 2013-05-26 10:09

      Your comment makes no sense? How are they immune?

      Candice van der Westhuizen - 2013-05-26 10:16

      Of course they are. I mean, the evidence against Carl Pistorius was soooooooo compelling that even the deceased's family didn't know why they charges had been reinstated. As for Oscar, how many other cases can you think of in which someone has been charged with murder, never mind premeditated murder, based on the flimsy evidence that the prosecution had by the time of the bail hearing? Above the law my rectum.

      Janicemcmaster - 2013-05-26 10:29

      Oh shut up!!!!!

      Koekies - 2013-05-26 10:46

      The point of the story is that you need to pay your taxes!!! I have and so does this spark plug.... I wonder what him and ole young starving lion MALema would say to one another....

      Cane Corso - 2013-05-26 10:47

      His brother was acquitted in a court of law. Respect the judges decision. Drop the witch hunt. Also, his brothers situation is irrelevant. The Oscar Pistorius case is sub judice. Afford others the same rights you expect from the law. Yes, it appears he was negligent, possibly even murderous. That decision however remains the prerogative of the court.

      Bernard Ngwira - 2013-05-26 10:55

      @ Candice , you love this killer Oscar.

      Israel - 2013-05-26 12:44

      Britneyrussel i would love to know what you mean by "IMMUNE" this word cannot be applied in this contents as how the hell are "THEY IMMUNE"? - you must have failed English at school!! - if you do not know how to use a big word refrain from commenting - thks

      Shaun Malambo - 2013-05-26 16:34

      Oscar you scumbag go to jail.

      Neels de Bruin - 2013-05-26 17:13

      Koekies, you are not well. If you read the article you will notice that he paid the fine. Did Malema ever pay any fine? Did he actually acknowledge that he did wrong?

      Gideon Van Der Walt - 2013-05-27 10:56

      @Candice I love it when you talk dirty!

      Littlegiant Nkhalamba - 2013-05-27 14:12

      Point is 'if you've got the money you can get off so easily'.... ever heard of the idiom 'action speaks louder than words but money speaks the loudest'?

      Armand Horn - 2013-05-27 16:11

      @Brit. Yes when Zuma didn't pay his taxes, he was only warned and then had to pay the arrears.....some are more equal than others it seems.

      Belinda Oberholster - 2013-05-27 17:27

      Sensation or tax leak............... Somebody is in trouble and the surname is not Pistorius

  • Richard Scully - 2013-05-26 09:21

    This guy deserves jail for a long time. All his crying just shows he is actually a weak character which is probably why he is a big gun freak because it makes him feel strong

      Nettie Potgieter - 2013-05-26 09:32

      Shame!!!!

      Elaine Greenblatt - 2013-05-26 10:06

      For a man to cry does not show weakness. It is accepted today for a man to show his emotions.

      Zander Venter - 2013-05-26 11:23

      I dont know what your definition of BIG is, but a pistol it is not. Why shouldnt he own a gun, every criminal that Border Patrol lets through the borders have 10 and they want what other people worked hard for, even sometimes taking their lives for a stupid self phone. He shot and killed his girlfriend, why shouldn't he be sad? Im sure the day that one of your children or wife dies you too will shed a tear?

      Richard Scully - 2013-05-26 11:44

      Zander, big is a guy shooting off a gun he is PLAYING with in a busy maltose arch restaurant. He shouldn't have a gun to protect his girlfriend and family. He has a history if violent threats and look at what happened. His explanation given in bail court is bizarre to say the least and I I believe he murdered her in a premeditated murder and should be in jail now

      Norah Beukes - 2013-05-26 20:29

      Since when did you get to play God, leave the poor guy alone, would you like your sins published on the front page of a news paper, I think not

      Bright Zishiri - 2013-05-27 10:00

      nxaa shame man, thats not beer kkkk

    So he paid it, so what?

      Andrew Crawford - 2013-05-26 09:47

      Normally it means that you cheated on paying your correct taxes.

      Ntoagae Square Ntoagae - 2013-05-26 09:54

      Paid or not, that is not a point, this is what is wrong with the rich, they feel tax is optional

      Nurse Helenk - 2013-05-26 10:06

      It shows a disregard for the rule of law, just like the unpaid speeding fines.

      Andrew Crawford - 2013-05-26 12:09

      @ Adrian... I was busy thinking about a reply to your comment then I checked your Facebook profile. Whether lots of people do or not still does not make it right. Maybe if there was a way to check who gave me a thumbs down, you may have a list of people to check up on.

      Musa N Thabethe - 2013-05-26 13:09

      He is cheater too

      @Nurse - Actually fines for speeding are a penalty for doing something wrong. Taxes are a penalty for doing something right.

    Is SARS releasing this information to the media, i thought SARS is bound by confidentiality.

      Olwethu Otto Mapetla Jama - 2013-05-26 09:40

      strange country we live in, no one complained when sars dis the same to Mamela

      Papapipo Mzapi - 2013-05-26 09:41

      malemas information was also publicised

      bound to confidentiality my foot, what about malemas issue? you were soo happy about it.

      Benita Williams Cameron - 2013-05-26 09:48

      Hmmm at least one had to work for his earnings!

      Gawie Gorrel - 2013-05-26 09:59

      @Sephelo So sorry to see you cannot make it on your own. The burden of the chips on both your shoulders must be difficult to carry, eh? Try and see if you can make it on your own without trying to blame your incompetence on some white somewhere! But then, not pssible, shame.

      Olwethu.....why should people complain when they're happy?

      Linda Horsfield - 2013-05-27 08:26

      SARS are bound by confidentiality. However, once charges of tax evasion are laid the case is heard before a judge in special commercial crimes court - and this becomes a public record. It is the same as an accused in a criminal case cannot be identified until they appear in court - but once they do they can be identified and their offences reported upon.

    So he paid the fine, what about the tax? Lawyers must be getting worried, no money coming in, only going out, how long before it runs out.

      Nurse Helenk - 2013-05-26 09:55

      lol who knows? The whole family is flush with cash, the lawyers must be rubbing their hands together hoping for a long, drawn out trial.

      Linda Horsfield - 2013-05-27 08:30

      SARS always get their money - so he would have paid SARS the tax that he should have paid, plus interest from the date it should have been paid, plus penalties of up to 200% of the tax owed. This is in addition to any fine agreed to in terms of a plea bargain entered into to avoid the case going to trial.

      Nurse Helenk - 2013-05-26 10:03

      Speak for yourself, the law and courts will determine his fate. Not everyone has such a dramatic wrong turn to the extent that they kill someone in such a manner. It is up to her family to forgive in my opinion. They are also entitled to seek a civil case against him at a later stage. He killed their beautiful daughter, due to negligence or intent.

      Nqaba Tom - 2013-05-26 11:31

      He has not paid price for his action, his action is MURDER

      @Azande that's true what you are saying Oscar is a cheater and murderer Maleme is a cheater, who is better

  • Matome Lucky - 2013-05-26 10:05

    Oscar if u want to know about SARS, ask Juju, let him give u some tips chief

      Azande Futhi - 2013-05-26 10:17

      There is a huge difference between Oscar and Juju.

      Matome Lucky - 2013-05-26 17:13

      @Professor Azande, some tips on how to evade tax. Not on how to commit crime

  • Azande Futhi - 2013-05-26 10:09

    Interestingly, we are not told how much he owes SARS. And he gets fined. For others, we are told how much they owe and their assets get attached. Welcome to SA Double Standards.

      Claire Rees - 2013-05-26 10:20

      If you don't have money to pay the fine then your assets get attached to pay for the fine, if you have money to pay the fine then your assets don't get attached! Its common sense what double standards are you referring to?

      Benita Williams Cameron - 2013-05-26 10:25

      That will come

      Azande Futhi - 2013-05-26 10:29

      @Claire, how much does he owe? Not known, or not disclosed? how much was the fine, not known or not disclosed? that's the double standard I am talking about.

      Linda Horsfield - 2013-05-27 08:34

      There are no double standards. I assume you are referring to Malema - in which case it was his own lawyer that disclosed the amount that SARS was claiming from him - not SARS. Furthermore, Malema's assets were only attached by SARS because he refused to pay the tax due, unlike Oscar who paid SARS the money he owed without them having to resort to legal action.

      Philip Condor - 2013-05-27 18:05

      @azande.. just like your comments on mugabe you also believe in the tokolosh eish!Get life man this is tha real world

  • Candice van der Westhuizen - 2013-05-26 10:10

    Do you think Pistorius looks after his own financial affairs? He has a business manager, a PA and an accountant. A payment was found to have been missed and he duly paid the fine for it. He's hardly the first person, let alone the first celebrity, to have been found to have omitted to do this so why is this news? "his finances have taken a knock as two of his biggest sponsors have broken ties with him" - CORRECTION: They have suspended payments pending the outcome of the trial. No different to being suspended from a job pending investigation. SAPS should try it some time. "and he no longer competes at athletic events." - CORRECTION: Through choice. He has received invitations to all but one of this year's invitation events and qualification events depend solely on running the qualification time. "He is due to again appear in court on 4 June to face a charge of murder." - CORRECTION: He is due to appear in court on 4 June when the prosecution may or may not have the list of indictments ready and the defence may or may not have is case ready. If both are ready, a date for trial will be set. If one or either is not, they will set a date for another hearing. I can understand some members of the public thinking 4 June is the start of the trial but an outlet still spilling this misinformation?

      Azande Futhi - 2013-05-26 10:22

      The fact that he doesn't look after his finances himself remains solely his choice and his business not ours nor SARS. He is a bastard and must be treated as such.

      Nurse Helenk - 2013-05-26 10:22

      "his finances have taken a knock as two of his biggest sponsors have broken ties with him" - CORRECTION: They have suspended payments pending the outcome of the trial. No different to being suspended from a job pending investigation. SAPS should try it some time. Correction: They won't be taking him back. He will be found guilty of some criminal charge (eg culpable homicide) and his reputation has taken a huge knock. You can't get a VISA to travel to some countries like the US if you have a criminal charge against you. Just ask Mark Thatcher. I can't comment on your assumptions that he is receiving tons of invitations - maybe you can elaborate more on this item since you seem to know more than the general public.

      Christine van Aswegen - 2013-05-26 11:07

      Candice, QUESTION; Is he innocent of wrong-doing? you seem to know him well, did he or did he not MURDER his girlfriend? he admitted to it, he was supposedly sleeping and heard someone in the bathroom, and shot several shots into the closed door without finding out where she was? someone who was supposedly sleeping beside him? Gee whizz! how dim do we look?

    If Christ does not condemn us and we fail Christ each day with our words, actions and thoughts, then why are we so quick to condemn! No sin is bigger than the next, a sin is a sin in Gods eyes! Why is it that we hate so quickly and when called to love unconditionally we can't. God says I love you with an unfailing love and my love goes on and on and extends to heavens and the depth of the seas! Oscar, is in the hands of the court, let it be! We all have skeletons in our closet so been self righteous and judgemental does not help!

      Nkululeko Madi - 2013-05-26 11:49

      Erasmus i wish u can write that on every article in news24 that has related stories regardless the colour of the skin. Everyone believe they're righteous until wrongfully so and we are not judges on that matter. Now my question is: who has a right to be murdered in this case? The thief or the girlfriend...?

      What should we do with CONVICTED murderers? Pay for their laptops and a lifetime of free room and board in prison?

      Cane Corso - 2013-05-26 11:02

      I normally advise chains and a real life sentence. Working the fields to feed and clothe the poor and themselves. Death is too easy whilst murder by any other name remains murder. Thus, hanging someone would bring you down to the same level as the murderer.

We will be made to believe it is normal for a disabled person to fear intruders to the extent that they are entitled to exterminate them from a distance and behind a closed door.

For this whole OP thing to be over and then you having the full wrath of the law thrown at you for all your insinuations, assumptions and hate speech u spew out all the time about OP and the official people working on this case. Good God woman, get over it now.

      Nurse Helenk - 2013-05-26 16:56

      Dear Miss Dolittle (funny name ha ha), I have not once insinuated, assumed or spread hate speech in my comments. If you had taken the time to read my comments you would see that I do not call him a murderer. All I want is justice to be served for Reeva Steenkamp. So if you wish to come after me, bring it on because I have done nothing except question the facts. And I am entitled to do so. Your threats mean nothing to me Miss Dolittle. I suggest you continue to do little because you seem to add little to this world.

      Delilah Dolittle - 2013-05-27 01:11

      Dolittle beats nurse helenk anyday. You say you haven't spread hate speech? I beg to differ dear. You have tried, convicted and executed OP from the start. I do read your comments and they are all negative and presumptuous. Unless you are privy to information that us normal real folk, not fake, are not. Who made u the judge and jury of OP?

      Delilah Dolittle - 2013-05-27 06:09

      What really gets me down is how you try and inject your sick humour into your comments. In another article you joke about getting rid of unwanted guests, and the joke is aimed at Reeva. This article you make out that a circus, which is pleasurable to little ones, is what OP is bringing to the world. Once again, Reeva bears the brunt of the joke. Shame on you.

    Rotten to the core.

  • Luanda Gqirana - 2013-05-26 11:24

    Bring back the death sentence.

      Louise Venter Coetser - 2013-05-26 12:31

      Would you have said that if Oscar was black ?

  • Isabel de Faria - 2013-05-26 11:58

    Has any of the people commenting here realised both families are going through their own hell Reeva's for the loss of a wonderful daughter and Oscar's not really knowing is hell in itself.I cannot judge but only he knows what happened that day and his life whether he goes to jail or not will never be the same. What happened that day will be in his head in his dreams with him forever as long as he lives.

  • Tumelo Radebe - 2013-05-26 12:00

    This guys money let's him get away with murder its sad we value money more than life.

  • Nkululeko Madi - 2013-05-26 12:02

    Peopld the issue here is sars tax not his murder trial. As for sars, how about u check yo files wel of unpaid tax and attend those individuals and companies secretly coz i dnt see client confidentiality. This is between Oskido nd sars...and that includes the great Juju please come back we are bored now#LOL

  • Karen Dee W - 2013-05-26 12:04

    Why do people who complain about the OP comments keep reading the comments?

      Nurse Helenk - 2013-05-26 12:12

      Because they don't like to read something they don't agree with. :)

  • Khanyi Myataza - 2013-05-26 12:04

    It's pretty much Adriaan's style to be sensational. How much is "hundreds of thousands of rands" and "less than a million". Write a full story if you have to, or just shut up and smoke your pipe.

      Yondela Gupta-Valela - 2013-05-26 12:08

      Kanyie, lol that is Adriaan for you. We want to know the exact figure!

  • Patrick Erni - 2013-05-26 12:49

    News 24.... Scraping the barrel, shame on you!

  • Vusi Mpela - 2013-05-26 12:49

    So what.... Just trying to sell more papers. There are so many killers walking the streets in SA, so many people that don't pay their tax..... Come on, leave these people in peace. Soon there will be a judgement on what happened.

  • Victor Peters - 2013-05-26 12:59

    Hi Britney, it seems that you are just plain stupid. Explain the Pistorius Bros being immune. Remember, you are what you think about.If you don't understand this saying let me know and I'll explain it to you. You do have a "dof"mind

  • Lappies Labuschagne - 2013-05-26 13:11

    Gotta love SARS! Making the rest of the government look inadequate.

  • Roger Jenkins - 2013-05-26 13:25

    Tax dodging. Another character flaw. Now how does he tell an honest story?

  • John Smith - 2013-05-26 13:28

    Who cares? It's just more money for the corrupt politicians to waste!

      Yuri Buccaneer - 2013-05-26 14:34

      When a murderer owes tax, no one cares, but you seemed to have cared when juju was being stripped by sars....

      Eric Sthembiso Ngema Sthembiso - 2013-05-27 06:27

      @John Smith u've got a donkey brain

  • John Smith - 2013-05-26 13:33

    SARS is the only efficient agency. The SARB want the interest on the money they printed and loaned to treasury.

      Nurse Helenk - 2013-05-26 13:53

      If they are so efficient why do they wait for criminal proceedings to do an audit? How many other multi-millionaires are dodging tax??

  • Shen Taro - 2013-05-26 15:11

    @candice...a dead body riddled with bullets which the accused, by his own admission, has discharged (through a locked door, mind you), you regard as FLIMSY evidence? What an utterly brainless comment

  • Rashida Patel - 2013-05-26 15:25

    Sad ....from hero to zero !

  • Hendrik de Villiers - 2013-05-26 15:51

    Good! Grind him! Next step is the gallows!

  • Kelvin Mzuzu - 2013-05-26 16:03

    What a disable person abuse!!!
