Man charged $ 750,000 tax after LinkedIn profile reveals secret job

STOCKHOLM: A man from Sweden has been ordered to pay $ 750,000 (£ 494,000) after authorities discovered he had a secret job via his LinkedIn profile. The resident of Djursholm, an affluent suburb of Stockholm, had failed to declare all sources of income to the Swedish Tax Agency, reports The Local.
The Swedish police’s financial crimes division launched an investigation after they were sent an anonymous letter and paperwork suggesting that the unnamed individual worked for a company in the British Virgin Isles that deals with biomass products. As part of the inquiry, authorities checked the culprit’s profile on professional networking site LinkedIn and found that the man had listed himself as an employee of the company since 2004.
Checks on the man and his wife’s bank accounts also revealed that the couple had been receiving payments from several foreign companies since 2007. The agency has claimed back money as far back as 2008, charging $ 150,000 (£ 99,000) per year of unpaid taxes.


Did Biden just ‘Inshallah’ Trump on his taxes during the US presidential debate?

Did Biden just ‘Inshallah’ Trump on his taxes during the US presidential debate? 

DUBAI: Shortly after the US presidential debate, Muslims took to social media to have their own debate on whether former Vice President Joe Biden used the Islamic term “Inshallah” with President Donald Trump.
During the televised debate that aired on Tuesday, Biden pushed his rival to release his tax returns.
Trump said his records would be released “when they were ready,” after he was asked about a New York Times report that said the president had only paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017, and none in 10 of the previous 15 years. 
“When? Inshallah,” Biden butted in, leading social media users to begin their own debate on whether the Vice President used the Arabic word for “God willing.”

 


Although the term is often used in its true meaning by Muslims, it has also been known to have been used informally by some to indicate something is unlikely to happen.

 


“Did he really say Inshallah tho(ough)?” One user commented on the video that was shared by Araby Society on the social media platform, Instagram. 
Although another wrote: “I heard ‘when…in July?”

 

 

 

 

 


In what some say was the most chaotic presidential debate in recent years, the two men frequently talked over each other with Trump interrupting, nearly shouting, so often that Biden eventually snapped at him, “Will you shut up, man?”
“The fact is that everything he’s said so far is simply a lie,” Biden said. “I’m not here to call out his lies. Everybody knows he’s a liar.”
