IRB wants Najib's son Nizar to pay RM13.1m in unpaid taxes

PETALING JAYA (Sept 27): Putrajaya is seeking RM13.1 million in unpaid taxes from 41-year-old businessman Mohamad Nizar, another son of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak.

According to a report by Malaysiakini today, the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) filed a tax suit against him on behalf of the federal government at the Shah Alam High Court Registry on July 24.

The government is also seeking to recover RM1.69 billion from his father Najib, RM37.6 million from his brother Mohd Nazifuddin and RM10.3 million from his sister Nooryana Najwa.

The news portal said tax suits were also filed against Nazifuddin and Nooryana on the same date. The legal action against Najib was filed on June 25.

Nizar is accused of failure to pay RM764,228.07, RM1,624,985.74, RM1,592,904.17, RM530,066.52, RM1,215,490.78, RM1,908,897.91, and RM3,757,212.10, as additional tax assessment for the years 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.

He was slapped with 10% on the total due to his purported failure to pay back the taxes within 30 days of being served the assessment notice at his last known address at No 38, Jalan 4M, Ampang Jaya, Ampang, Selangor, on March 22 this year.

For failing to pay up within 60 days, the defendant was hit with a further 5% hike, bringing the total tax due to RM13,159,821.94.
