Crocodile Dundee’s tax battle ends

CROCODILE DUNDEE has finally fended off the taxman after entering into a deal.
The long-running tax battle between Australian actor Paul Hogan and the country’s tax authorities has ended with a settlement.

Hogan and his producer compatriot john Cornell were in a dispute over what the tax authorities claimed was an alleged unpaid tax bill of £95m.

The settlement is made on a “without admission” basis. He had been blocked from returning to his Los Angeles home for two weeks in 2010 following his mother’s funeral.

Hogan, who has denied the authority’s claims, said he was pleased the dispute was over.
