A Court in France has charged 28 year old Soccer Star, Taiye Taiwo with tax evasion.
The Nigeria international who played for Olympique Marseille in Ligue 1, is accused of not paying his income tax in 2008 and 2009, as well as his property tax in 2011, all of which amounts to €1,025,000. The fiscal authorities
have seized Taiwo’s €600,000 mansion in Marseille, which they say will be auctioned off for just €200,000. The trial was conducted in Taiwo’s absence and neither the player nor a lawyer was present. The tax office has however stated that Taiwo can apply through
his lawyer for installment or delayed
payment, if he does not have money to pay it off now.
