Roxette to pay taxes!

[img_assist|nid=1764|title=|desc=|link=none|align=center|width=333|height=450]
Roxette submitted incorrect information to the Tax Authority after the world tour in 1994 and 1995, and now they are finally charged with 4.5 million SEK to pay.
The Supreme Administrative Court rejects Per Gessle and Marie Bolyos (former Fredriksson) appeal.

The investigation began ten years ago, when it was suspected that Per Gessle and Marie Bolyos bypassed tax during the part of the tour, which was held in Germany. Fees were paid to the artists' joint production company instead of salary to the artists, who were therefore not submitted to income tax obligation. The money, however, is to be regarded as income, because the artists had them. Therefore, the fact is that Per Gessle with just over SEK 2.3 million and Marie Bolyos with over 2.2 million have to pay. Tax requirements apply also travel benefits for Per Gessle wife and Marie Bolyos husband, who accompanied them on the tour.

STOCKHOLM - Per Gessle and Mats MP Persson will travel to London October 7 to receive yet another "Million-Air" award for "Listen to Your Heart."

"Listen to Your Heart" has been played over 4.000.000 times on US radio, same as "It Must Have Been Love" in 2005. According to BMI.com, based on an average length of three minutes, one million airplays is the equivalent of 50,000 hours or 5.7 years of continuous airplay. Top Million-Air songs are for instance The Police's "Every Breath You Take" and The Beatles' "Yesterday" with both over 8.000.000 plays.

Roxette has eight BMI awarded songs.

Per Gessle is obviously very pleased with this and comments "Yay!"
