Najib Razak's daughter questions tax charges, asks why household expenses considered income

...questioned tax charges

Former prime minister Mohd Najib Abdul Razak's daughter Nooryana Najwa Mohd Najib has vowed to fight the Inland Revenue Board (IRB), who have sued her for Malaysian Ringgit 10.3 million in unpaid income taxes from 2011 to 2017.

Nooryana Najwa said she had never thought that being the joint-owner of a house with her husband  and money that her husband had given her for household expenses could be considered income.

She said that when IRB started auditing her last year, she sùbmitted all the proof, including detailed bank transfer documents that showed most of the so-called income from abroad were transfers fròm her husband's family.

"I also furnished proof, showing that my in-laws purchased a home directly using their funds from abroad. My husband's family then listed me as joint-owner of the home.

"Somehow, this act of listing me as joint-owner with my husband is now considered by the government as my 'income'.

"And this forms the bulk of the 'tax due', even though the payment for the house did not even go through me," Nooryana Najwa said in a Facebook post today, Tuesday 27 August 2019.

She also said her husband and his family had been independently wealthy long before they met and that her mother-in-law was previously married to one of Kazakhstan's richest tycoons for ten years.

She claimed that even if payments from a husband to wife were considered income, the transfers were from abroad and should not be taxed.

"At the age of 30 now and having spent many years studying and briefly working overseas, I have never operated any business in Malaysia and have never bid for nor received any government contracts of any sort.

"Just like the case of my father and siblings, who have been similarly hit on a ridiculous basis, many who know the details of the case are shocked and speechless at how blatant the government is abusing the laws," she said.

Nooryana Najwa added that she did not blame the people in IRB, as there were politicians higher up who were behind it.

The Malaysian Government, as the plaintiff, filed a writ of summons and statement of claim through the IRB on 24 July 2019 at the Shah Alam High Court in Selangor, naming Nooryana as the defendant.

According to the statement of claim, the Malaysian Government alleged she had failed to submit the Individual Income Tax Return Forms to the IRB, under Section 77 of the Income Tax Act 1967 for the years of assessment 2011 to 2017.

The Government of Malaysia said that an assessment under subsection 90(3) of the Tax Act, including penalties had been raised through Notices of Assessment dated 15 March 2019.
