The RA State Revenue Committee of Armenia has in all seriousness decided to make tax-dodger actors pay taxes.
Armenian pop stars have never paid taxes, but from now is it a mandatory procedure for them.
Show business personalities will have to submit their annual income statements.
Singer Silva Hakobyan is among the honest taxpayers.
The law has been in force since the late 1990s, but has not been considered by either the RA State Revenue Committee or pop stars.
But after the velvet revolution the State Revenue Committee has taken a firmer stand, and actors have to pay 23% of their incomes.
Tax-dodgers are running the risk of being sentenced to up to six years in prison.
