The IRB on July 24 filed the writ of summons against Nooryana at the Shah Alam High Court, according to Bernama.

The statement of claim alleged that Nooryana failed to declare her individual income under Section 77 of the Income Tax Act 1967 for the years of 2011 until 2017.

It added that if Nooryana failed to pay the sum within 30 days from the notice, an additional penalty of 10 percent would be imposed and another five percent in the subsequent 60 days.

The amount the IRB is seeking is RM2,807,452.42 for 2011, RM30,738.28 for 2012, RM6,943,811.07 for 2013, RM313,967.02 for 2014, RM56,048.65 for 2015, RM158,922.46 for 2016 and RM24,352.46 for 2017.

This brings the total to RM10,335,292.36.

The case is set for case management on Sept 12.

The move comes after the IRB on July 24 slapped an RM37.6 million tax claim against Najib's son Mohd Nazifuddin for unpaid taxes from 2011 until 2017.

The IRB has also slapped an RM1.69 billion tax claim on Najib.
