Patna: Mar 28, 2014


 Mahendra Singh Dhoni has paid Rs 20 crore income tax in 2013-14 to retain his pole position as the highest individual tax payer in the Bihar and Jharkhand region, a senior Income Tax official informed.


Dhoni has paid an income tax worth Rs 20 crore in 2013-14 to emerge as the highest tax payer in individual category in Bihar and Jharkhand region for sixth consecutive year, Principal Chief Commissioner, Patna, RK Rai told reporters.


On the dip in the IT paid by Dhoni this fiscal as compared to Rs 22 crore he paid in 2013, Rai said that the drop may be due to reduction in the Team India captain’s income from various sources.


Dhoni’s income from advertisement sources might have come down this year, Rai said.
