Neymar offers to pay $2.5m fine to Brazil tax authorities

Brazilian football star Neymar is willing to pay a fine of
$2.5 million to settle tax evasion allegations in his country, his lawyer said
The 25-year-old wants to leave the fight with Brazilian
authorities behind him as he prepares for a new professional life with Paris
Saint-Germain after his record $261 million (222 million euro) transfer buyout
from FC Barcelona, Neymar’s lawyer Marcos Neder told a press conference.
“This process has stretched on for more than three years and
our goal is to move ahead with the new phase that Neymar has begun,” Neder
In September 2015, Brazilian tax authorities seized what was
then the equivalent of $55.7 million in Neymar’s assets to cover what they said
were unpaid taxes from 2011 to 2013, plus penalties and interest.
The case has been snaking its way through the courts ever
since. Neymar has scored some victories such as having the amount of seized
assets reduced.
However, it is now up to tax authorities to decide whether
they accept the amount that Neymar’s defense team has calculated that he owes.
Neymar also faces corruption charges in Spain stemming from
his transfer to Barcelona from the Brazilian team Santos in 2013.
