#oyinbotorchlight – NEYMAR ORDERED TO PAY US$113,000 IN TAXES OWED TO BRAZIL
Barcelona forward Neymar and his father must pay nearly 460,000 reais (79,250
pounds) to Brazil’s inland revenue in taxes owed from 2007 and 2008, a Sao Paulo
federal judge ordered in a ruling made public.
The pair, both called Neymar, had appealed against the payment which dates back
to the Brazil captain’s time at his first club Santos but Judge Bruno Cezar da Cunha
Teixeira ruled on Jan. 15 there were no grounds for granting the appeal.
Neymar Junior owes 193,300 reais and his father, involved in the case because his
son was under 18 at the time, 266,300. A judge froze 188.8 million reais of Neymar’s
assets last September in a tax evasion case dating back to 2011-13.
