The court has rejected all four petitions filed by the actress under the MVAT Act against Sales Tax notices for the years 2012-13 and 2013-14, leaving her with the option to appeal against the decision on the Maharashtra Value Added Tax Act.

The court’s decision was pronounced by the bench of Justices Nitin Jamdar and Abhay Ahuja, completely dismissing the controversial petition of the actress.

Understanding Anushka’s Sales Tax case

Anushka had challenged the orders of the Mazgaon Sales Tax deputy under the Maharashtra Value Added Tax Act for the years 2012-13 and 2013-14. The Maharashtra government had ordered a tax imposition of Rs 1.2 crore on the income of Rs 12.3 crore from Anushka in the first year, and in the second year, she was taxed at Rs 1.6 crore on an income of Rs 17 crore. The tax was related to performance and advertisements.

Anushka’s Options

The court has refused to provide any relief to the actress, and she can appeal the decision on the Maharashtra Value Added Tax Act. Although it is a setback for Anushka, the actress can still appeal against the decision and seek relief.
