Sars - A breakdown of the claimed millions owed to Sars by ‘Major League DJz.'

Sars is said to have won default judgments against Major League DJz and Tumi Masemola, which might lead to the attachment of their assets.

After prominent DJs Banele and Bandile Mbere (Major League DJz) made news for reportedly owing the South African Revenue Service (Sars) millions in back taxes and other outstanding sums, social media was buzzing with questions.

Tumi Masemola, the former lead singer of the Gang of Instrumentals, is among individuals who owe Sars large amounts in unpaid taxes, according to a recent report in the Sunday World.

The revenue service won default judgments against the musicians this week, according to the magazine, and Sars may have to attach their assets to recoup the money.

The following is a list of what Major League DJz is said to owe Sars:

According to the article, the following amounts were found in documents.

- Unpaid business income tax of R1.3 million

- Over R800,000 in extra taxes

- Interest of almost R900,000 on the sums

— Value-added tax of almost R2.2 million

- An extra tax of R1.3 million

- Unpaid pay as you earn tax of R740,000

- An extra tax of R290,000

- Penalties of R58,000

- The Unemployment Insurance Fund will get R373,000 (UIF)

- Skills Development Levy of R680,000

According to the newspaper, R1.1 million in interest was then imposed on top of the R96,000. It's unclear whether the R1.1 million was in addition to the R900,000 in interest, and the magazine didn't say what the R96,000 was for.

The news comes after the twins landed their own MTV Base reality program, dubbed "Inside Life: Major League."

The Major League DJz have also just completed a tour of the United Kingdom to "bring the Amapiano sound to the globe," and have been on the road since late July. The pair was in Los Angeles at the time of writing and could not comment on the report.

“Inside Life: Major League” was planned to get up close and personal with the Major League DJz as they tick off some of their bucket list experiences throughout the continent with their buddies, according to a statement published by Viacom in August.

“Viewers will recognize Uncle Vinny and meet Khaya Bengu, as well as hear about what goes on behind the scenes and get a glimpse of their personal relationships.”
