Amitabh Bachchan is the top tax-payer in country
Mumbai: Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan claims he is the ‘top’ tax-payer in the country with Rs 15.59 crore and with Aishwarya Rai joining the family, the Bachchan family's total tax would be around Rs 25.3 crore. 

He was reacting to a newspaper report that said Hrithik Roshan was the highest tax payer with Rs.15.10 crore for 2006-2007 and Shah Rukh paid Rs 14 crore tax.

"I'm surprised by the report and I've serious doubts about its authenticity because my name isn't mentioned anywhere among the top most taxpayers of the entertainment business. This gives the utterly false impression that I ake pots of money and don't pay up enough taxes," said Bachchan.

Clarifying that he tops among the tax-payers of the country, the Bachchan said, "If you look at the figures for the year 2006-2007, you'll see Amitabh, that's yours truly, has paid Rs 14.15 crore and from our company AB Corp Ltd. where all the earnings are mine, we've paid Rs.1.44 crore. 

"Abhishek Bachchan has paid Rs 4.75 crore. And now that Aishwarya Rai is a part of the family, approximately Rs 5 crore tax money has come from her. This makes it a total of Rs 25.3 crore,” he said.

“They've (newspaper report) put Hrithik as the top most taxpayer! Even if you take my tax figures individually I still top,” he asserted.
