Income tax department conducted a raid on Suriya’s properties in 2010 and asked to pay the tax in 2011. The IT department sent an order to Suriya in 2011 about Rs 3 crore 11 lakh 96 thousand rupees had to be paid in taxes.
Suriya approached the court in 2018 seeking income tax exemption saying he pays tax regularly and has the right to seek the exemption. But now the case judge M. Subramaniam has rejected Suriya’s petition. Madras high court rejected the petition filed by Suriya. Income Tax Department states that Suriya did not fully cooperate with the income tax assessment process so he is not entitled to an interest deduction.
