Crocodile Dundee Paul Hogan not allowed to leave Australia until he pays his tax bill, $37 million
Paul Hogan has been prevented from leaving the country because of alleged tax debts.

The Crocodile Dundee star's lawyers said he returned to Australia last week for his mother's funeral and was served a departure prohibition order, stopping him from leaving until the disputed sum is paid or settled.

''He is stunned and very disappointed that the government could treat him as a flight risk,'' Paul Robinson, from Robinson Legal, said in a statement.

''Paul continues to vehemently deny any wrongdoing. The process of detaining [him] … away from his wife and child in Los Angeles has devastated Paul,'' the statement said.

The departure prevention order has reportedly been served under the Tax Administration Act. The Tax Office said that it could not comment on individual taxpayers.

But his solicitors said it was a move by the Tax Office to gain leverage in talks with the actor.

They are hoping to resolve the issue quickly, although the actor has been under the spotlight of the Tax Office and the Australian Crime Commission for years.

His lawyers said that after five years of ''intrusive investigations … no charges have been laid''. ''He hopes that discussions between us and the ATO will lead to a prompt resolution allowing him to return to his family, and thereafter to travel to and from Australia as his personal and business needs require.

Chuck Norris says he isn't.


" I, Chuck Norris, gave Paul Hogan a monogramed pocket watch to celebrate his becoming a US citizen. He turns to me and says “That’s not a present to commemorate my US citizenship, THATS a present for such an event…” And he gave himself a previously unread letter from his father expressing the latter’s hopes and dreams for his son.

It was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

Chuck Norris out "

His lawyers say he could be stuck in Australia for years. The Australian Tax Office certainly doesn't muck around.


"Actor Paul Hogan could be stuck in Australia for years, his lawyer says.

The Crocodile Dundee star, who returned to Australia to attend his mother's funeral, has been prevented from leaving under an order by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) because of an alleged multimillion-dollar tax bill.

Andrew Robinson, of Sydney law firm Robinson Legal, says he hopes agreement can be reached with the ATO, otherwise Hogan "could potentially be stuck in Australia for years"."

It's simple,

Paul could crocodile wrestle the immigration officers at passport control - then make a run for the plane, just like he did on the excellent Crocodile Dundee documentary.

All he has to do is become a freeman.

Then he can just tell them to fuck off.

And they will have to.

He should have known this would happen. That is A LOT to owe in taxes. Maybe he should be happy he isn't in jail. He needs to move his family to Australia until he gets this figured out.
