Salman pays highest income tax in Bollywood in 2016-17

With all his films raking in big moolah, it does not come as a surprise to us that Salman Khan tops the list of highest advance tax-payers in B-town. As per reports shared by the IT department, Bhai has paid an advance tax of Rs. 44.5 crore for the fiscal year 2016-17 as against Rs. 32.2 crore paid last year. The difference in figures clearly shows an income growth of 39 per cent over the last one year.

The second highest tax payer is none other than the Khiladi, Akshay Kumar. Even with a series of hits in 2016, Akshay’s income has seen a minor drop. Akshay paid an advance tax of Rs. 29.5 crore as opposed to Rs. 30 crore in the last fiscal.

Next in line is Hrithik Roshan with an advance tax payment of Rs. 25.5 crore. The last financial year saw the actor paying Rs. 14 crore, which obviously means that his income graph has seen a positive growth.

The list also includes the names of biggies like Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, etc. to name a few. Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Aishwarya Rai do not feature in the list as they’re under investigation linked to the Panama Papers leak.
