Fan Bingbing is required to pay taxes and penalties totalling $130 million in order to avoid getting prosecuted. However, in merely 2 days, the Chinese actress has already settled her tax fine.
According to several Chinese media outlets, the 37-year-old star has paid off her $128,535,851 (880 million yuan) in taxes and penalties within just 2 days after receiving the notice.
She has reportedly sold off 41 apartment units in Beijing in order to pay off her taxes and penalties. According to Koreaboo, the sale stated, “As a private property, property rights are clear and there are no related loans, but we hope for a bulk purchase.”
It is said that the actress’ apartment units listed were 30% cheaper than the market value. The total value of these properties is estimated to be around $145,583,700 (1 billion yuan).
Moreover, Fan Bingbing’s fiance Li Chen has also reportedly listed a luxury property in Beijing for sale in order to help the actress. The actor previously broke his silence for the first time on Weibo where he posted, “No matter how difficult it may be, we will get through this together.”
Fan Bingbing was seen in public for the first time in months leaving a building that is assumed to be a tax office with her bodyguards. She also posted a new update on her Weibo after her apology statement. “I can feel how deeply you all care about me. I miss all of you too!
