N75m Tax Evasion Mess: Linda Ikeji Denies Ownership Of N500m Banana Island Mansion 

Linda Ikeji might soon be in a running battle with the Lagos Inland Revenue Service over an alleged tax evasion.

It was learnt that  moves to track her down started about a month ago but all attempts by the agency were said to have been frustrated.

According to Capital Ng , the celebrity blogger had been evading tax payment, which has amounted to the whooping sum of N75 Million.
However, when asked about the purchase of the house, it was disclosed that Linda blatantly denied ownership of the N500 Million luxurious mansion which she allegedly purchased in 2015.
A source informed that at a time she was about to be served a notice of tax assessment, her father who was to receive the letter allegedly declined to do so. On the second occasion, the delivery man was turned back on the excuse that no individual known as Linda Ikeji was resident at the address.
The agency however got their way last week as she was served with video and photographic evidences at her new mansion in Banana Island.
Close source at the tax office revealed that checks conducted on her showed that she had only paid N4,000 as tax in the last six years.
At the moment the agency is said to be requesting for her tax assessment of personal income with a caveat that failure to do so may compel them to proceed to court for a criminal proceeding.
 A particular issue raised by a source was the withholding tax ought to have been paid to the state government on the N500m property she recently acquired in Lagos. It was also hinted that if she refuses to respond to the request of the inland revenue, the agency shall be forced to drag her to the court.
