Serbian music stars face sudden tax scrutiny

By Aleksandar Vasovic BELGRADE (Reuters) – Tax inspectors in Serbia have turned their attention to a parade of local pop and folk music stars summoned to explain their earnings and extravagant lifestyles in the wake of a government pledge to rein in a vast gray economy. For the past week, a succession of singers have been pictured in tabloids turning up at the offices of Serbia’s tax authority, feeding speculation about tax evasion in the Serbia’s gaudy folk and pop scene. Attention has focused on 26-year-old Sandra Prodanovic, known as Sandra Afrika, who has been pictured in the media posing in front of a white BMW and lounging on a yacht. On Thursday, the Serbian daily Blic quoted unnamed sources as saying Prodanovic, who had a hit in 2012 with “Someone will make me a son tonight”, had told tax inspectors she performs for free and that her expensive cars were presents from her boyfriend and grandmother.
