Indian cricketers angry over 1.5-million dollar tax bouncer

Melbourne, Dec.20 : Indian cricketers have expressed anger and disappointment over a report that they will have to pay 1.5 million Australian dollars (Rs.6 crores) as tax to the Australian Taxation Office.
Indian cricketers have expressed anger and disappointment over a report that they will have to pay 1.5 million Australian dollars (Rs.6 crores) as tax to the Australian Taxation Office.

India's superstars, including Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly are reportedly quite annoyed by the development, as their match payments and tour fees are not taxed in India, where they are treated as amateurs by the financial authorities.

The tax slug is further fuel for a potentially explosive series against Australia, reports The Herald Sun.

The Indians have not been taxed on previous tours. But a change in Australian laws since they were last here in 2003-04 has left the tourists flabbergasted.

The BCCI tried to get an exemption, and is still investigating ways around the red tape.

India's media manager, Dr M.K. Shridhar, last night confirmed the BCCI was investigating the tax matter.

"Cricket Australia is helping, and they will work together and come back to us with a solution. Then I am not very sure if it will still apply."

Cricket Australia spokesman Peter Young said the board's memorandum of understanding meant the Indians had to follow Australian laws.

"When you are in Australia, the Australian tax law applies," he said. (ANI)
