'Harry Potter' Star Rupert Grint Loses $1.3 Million Tax Refund Case

Rupert Grint is about to be short $1.3 million, after a dispute over his taxes, according to E! News.

The 27-year-old Harry Potter actor will be forced to pay the hefty fee after a judge ruled that he changed some of his accounting dates to shield his earnings from a high tax rate.

Rupert reportedly followed advice from tax advisers to change his accounting date so that 20 months of income would be taxed in 2009-2010, which would prevent 8 months worth of income from being taxed in the 2010-2011 year, during which the top rate of tax rose from 40% to 50%.

During the hearing, Rupert said that his knowledge of his financial affairs was “quite limited” and “he placed his faith in his father and accountants to deal with his financial affairs.”
