Pay tax says Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar edged past the other stars in Bollywood to become the
highest tax payer for the financial year 2008-2009.

This time the CBEC - Central Board of Excise and Customs, has roped in
Akshay Kumar to feature in a television commercial urging people to
pay taxes honestly and on time.

The CBEC was of the opinion that no other Bollywood star could convey
the message of tax compliance better than Akshay Kumar who for the
last 4 years has been diligently paying his service tax in advance.

Says the Additional Commissioner, Customs & Central Excise, CBEC  "In
2008-2009 Akshay Kumar emerged the highest Bollywood tax payer. We
approached Mr.Kumar to feature in the advertisement since to us he was
someone who could represent the message of paying one's taxes on time
which is every citizen's duty. He has great appeal and being a
superstar he can really help encourage people to pay taxes honestly."

The CBEC, which is responsible for collection of customs, central
excise and service tax, released the advertisement on the 21st March
2010,Sunday .

Reveals a source " Akshay Kumar has always been meticulous when it
comes to paying his taxes and is willing to help in whatever way he
can to encourage citizens to do the same."
