Aug deadline for Kerry Katona to pay off tax bill

Singer Kerry Katona has been given an August deadline to pay a £157,000 debt to the taxman or go bankrupt

The former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona was given a final deadline
yesterday to pay off the rest of a £417,000 tax bill, amounting to £157,000, or
go bankrupt.

Her lawyer Luke Harris persuaded the court to give her until August 7 to pay,
saying Katona, who was not in court, could not meet the full amount because of
‘changed circumstances’, but she was expecting payments of £472,000 before the
end of August.

He said she was also strenuously seeking to remortgage her properties but
there would be no need if the money came – ‘I would ask for one final indulgence
by the court’.

Henderson Collymore, representing HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), said it
did not want another adjournment and his instructions were to seek a bankruptcy
order.
