Mzansi star actress and businesswoman Connie Ferguson’s former sister-in-law, Kgomotso Matsunyane has failed to settle her R2.8-million tax bill with the South African Revenue Service.
Kgomotso Mutsunyane is sister to Neo Matsunyane, who was married to Ferguson Films creator, Connie Ferguson and has a daughter, Lesedi Matsunyane-Ferguson with Connie.
A local publication reports that the South African Revenue Service (SARS) has obtained a default judgment against the icon’s film company, One Man and His Dog Films, at the Joburg High Court after she failed to settle its bill.
It is also revealed that her companies owe over R1.5million in unpaid value-added tax.
The amount extended to over R2.2-million after R221 000 penalties and over R69 000 interests were imposed.
Her companies also owe over R280 000 for Pay As You Earn, and this has increased to R390 000 after over R26 000 penalties and R75 000 interest were added.
Matsunyane’s company also owed SARS R143 000 in company income tax, but this hiked to R223 000 after R80 000 interest was added.
It also owes SARS a total of R38 000 in unemployment insurance fund payments and R110 000 in skills development levies.
These amounts include penalties and interest.
The publication has also reported that the TV personality was ignored on various occasions which resulted in SARS obtaining a judgment against Matsunyane’s companies.
She was meant to make arrangements or apply for a suspension of debt if she disputed the amount but failed to do so.
Matsunyane also went silent when she was asked if SARS could get a loan for her companies to settle the bill, which she would repay later.
Matsunyane declined to comment on the matter when she was contacted and referred the publication to her accountant.
“My accountant is dealing with this matter, I’m not interested in commenting about it, thank you,” she said.
