ACC drops Paul Hogan (Crocadile Dundee) TAX INVESTIGATION!!!
HOORAH!!!!! A WIN FOR THE GOOD GUYS!

A criminal investigation into actor Paul Hogan's tax affairs has been dropped by Australian Crime Commission (ACC).

In a statement released on Tuesday, the ACC said its CEO John Lawler had decided to discontinue the investigation.

The crime watchdog said the investigation was no longer considered to be in the public interest and there were "insufficient prospects of securing a convictions".

"It is the ACC's assessment that continuing with its investigation of Mr Hogan and (Mr Hogan's manager) Mr (John) Cornell is not justified in the public interest having regard to a range of factors," the statement said.

Earlier this year, the Crocodile Dundee star was temporarily banned from leaving Australia at the request of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) due to an ongoing dispute over his tax affairs.

The Australian Taxation Office will continue to negotiate with Hogan over its claims that he owes it more money. However, it is understood that any dispute between Hogan and the ATO is now a civil, not a criminal matter.
