Croc Dundee star loses fight with Oz taxman

Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan has lost his fight to stop Australian tax authorities' probe into his US bank accounts

Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan’s three US banks have been ordered to
produce his ‘books, records, papers and other data, within 30 days’, in a
decision by a US court.

In announcing his ruling, US District Court Judge George King, described
Hogan’s lawyers’ arguments for keeping tax investigators from looking into his
accounts as ‘meritless’ and ‘misplaced’, The Australian newspaper
reports.

US tax investigators have agreed to assist their Australian counterparts to
examine the Australian’s financial affairs.

Hogan claims he is being unfairly targeted by Australian tax officials and
has vowed in various media interviews to fight the investigation.
