Super Eagles defender Taye Taiwo may be in hot fix as he has been called in to answer questions over tax fraud charges levelled against him by France according to a report.

A Marseille court has already started judicial proceeding against him to seize his mansion based in Allauch — a French community situated east of Marseille — with the building put at €600,000.

According to findings of the French fiscal authorities, Taiye Taiwo defaulted in the payment of income taxes in 2008 and 2009 as well as property taxes in 2011 on his home, which they say will be auctioned at €200,000 — three times lower than its market value.

Taiwo, is said to owe €1,025,000(over N250 million) in taxes, but can apply through his lawyer for installment or delayed payment if he is not financially fit to settle at the moment.
