‘Come and get me you miserable bastards,’ Crocodile Dundee actor Paul Hogan challenges Oz taxman

‘Come and get me you miserable bastards,’ Paul Hogan, Australian Crocodile
Dundee actor, has challenged the
Australian Tax Office
(ATO), which has made him a target of its $A300m (?145m) Operation Wickenby
crackdown on tax fraud and evasion.

The ATO has enlisted the help of the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in
ordering three American banks to hand over nine years of Hogan’s bank records,
which the actor is fighting, News Limited reports.

Hogan, who has lived in the US for several years, says he has paid plenty of
tax to the Australian authorities. ‘They should build a statue of me at the tax
office,’ he told Australian television network Ten from his home in Santa
Barbara.

Hogan said he has nothing to fear from the ATO, and expected to be back in
Australia in September to shoot a new movie. ‘Come and get me,’ he said. ‘Come
and get me you miserable bastards.’
