Kangana Ranaut has expressed the pain of not being able to pay tax on her Instagram story. Sharing a video clip on the Central Government’s ‘It One Pay One Policy’, she wrote, ‘Even though I come in the highest tax slab. I give about 45 percent of my earnings as tax. Even though I am the highest tax paying actress, I have not yet paid half of my last year’s tax dues due to lack of work. For the first time in my life, I am getting late in paying taxes. Kangana further wrote in the post that the government is adding interest on their outstanding tax. However, she welcomes it.

Kangana Ranaut is one of those celebrities who usually give their opinion on every issue. Recently, when the central government announced the free Covid vaccination, Kangana gave her opinion on this as well. Kangana wrote on Instagram Story that if the government gets the vaccine installed free of cost, it will increase the burden on government expenditure. In such a situation, Kangana has appealed to the people that after getting the vaccine, they should donate Rs 100, Rs 200 or Rs 1000 as much as possible to the PM Cares Fund.
