Pulse today Tuesday, April 12, 2016 reached out to the actress reps who clearly state the actress not paying her tax is a false accusation.

They said, "That is not correct at all, we will send out a press release very soon. We are working with the government to find out who released that article."

E24-7 Magazine reported Omotola, the multiple brand ambassador had never filed her personal income tax return papers.

They reported a source saying, “It is unfortunate she has become so vocal, criticising the government but ignorant of her obligation as a citizen to pay tax.  She is not tax compliant. She failed  to know that it is from the tax that she and others  pay  that government will provide  all the amenities and infrastructures she mentioned. She needs a lot of education.

The 2013 Time 100 Most Infuencial People in the world recently lashed out at the government of Lagos State asking if they would refund all she had spent on buying her security, fuel and maintaining her road after having paid her tax.
