The Madras High Court has dismissed the case filed by Income Tax Department against actress Trisha Krishnan.
In the income disclosure for the 2010-2011 financial year, Trisha mentioned Rs 89.69 lakh but later in 2012, the actress mentioned that her income for the previous year is Rs 4.41 crore. The Income Tax Department found this as a major discrepancy and charged a penalty of Rs 1.16 crore.
But Trisha didn’t mention the advance amount she received in 2010-2011 because those were the money she got for future projects. “The assessee is not guilty of deliberate concealment of income and is not liable to be mulcted with a penalty under the Income Tax Act”, said the Madras High Court in its judgment and thus, it has been proved that Trisha hasn’t committed any crime and she has always been a perfect tax paying citizen.
