New Delhi: Stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan leads the list of top ten income tax defaulters in financial year 2008-09 in the country, who together owe more than Rs 80,000 crores in taxes, the government said in Parliament today.

The businessman owes Rs 50,345.73 crore in taxes for income tax assessment year 2009-10. He and his associates will now have to pay the government Rs 89,000 crore, including the penalties, according to the details furnished by government in the Lok Sabha.
