Black Coffee is the latest celebrity to find himself in hot water with the taxman.

According to the City Press, the 'LaLaLa' hitmaker owes SARS a whopping R40-million. He reportedly managed to negotiate the tax bill down to R8-million. 

The report also states that Black Coffee will allegedly dispose of some immovable properties in an effort to pay the hefty bill. 

Both SARS and the DJ declined to comment on the personal tax matter, according to City Press.

South Africa's media darling Bonang Matheba also found herself in SARS' bad books in 2018.

Bonang paid a R30,000 admission of guilt fine - R22,000 for failing to pay personal tax from 2008 - 2017 and R8,000 for not paying company tax from 2014 - 2017. 

She reportedly also paid SARS an undisclosed amount towards her tax bill. 

Queen B's bestie Somizi Mhlongo also found SARS knocking on his door a few years ago. According to the Sunday World, SomGaga owed the taxman R2,5-million.  

The Sunday Sun claimed that some of Somizi's luxury items, including his BMWi8, went under the hammer to foot the bill.
