The petition states that the assessing officer has levied sales tax not taking into account the film, but on the basis of the advertisement of the product and its performance at the award function.

Anushka Sharma News: bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has challenged in the Bombay High Court two orders passed by the Deputy Commissioner of Sales Tax for the financial years 2012-13 and 2013-14 under the Maharashtra Value Added Tax (VAT) Act. A bench of Justice Nitin Jamdar and Justice Abhay Ahuja on Thursday directed the sales tax department to respond to the actress’ plea and listed the matter for further hearing on February 6.
Anushka Sharma has requested the court to cancel the orders given by the Sales Tax Department. He has filed four petitions for assessment years 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16.
Court accepts Anushka Sharma’s petition
In December 2022, the High Court refused to consider the petition of Anushka Sharma’s Taxation Consultant (Taxation Consultant) Shrikant Velekar challenging the orders of the Sales Tax Department. After this, the actress filed a petition last week, which was accepted by the court and has sought response from the other side.
The High Court had then said that there is no reason why the affected person (Anushka) cannot file the petition herself. According to Anushka Sharma’s petitions, she worked in films and award functions as an artiste under a tripartite agreement. The agreement was between his agent, Yash Raj Films Private Limited and the producers/event organisers.
What is the whole matter?
The petition states that the assessing officer has levied sales tax not taking into account the film, but on the basis of the advertisement of the product and its performance at the award function. The department has fixed sales tax of Rs 12.3 crore for 2012-13 including interest of Rs 1.2 crore, while for the year 2013-14 sales tax of Rs 1.6 crore has been fixed on about Rs 17 crore.
