Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario to pay $5.1 million in back taxes
The Spanish Supreme Court has ordered Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario to pay back approximately $5.1 million in unpaid income tax.
The court rejected Sanchez-Vicario’s assertion that she was a resident of Andorra and not Spain from 1989 to 1993.
The court said in its ruling Thursday that the three-time French Open champion “never effectively lived in Andorra and never had the intention of doing it in any moment, either.”
Sanchez Vicario, who also won the U.S. Open in 1994, was appealing the decision from a high court ruling in July 2003.
