According to various entertainment sources, the National Tax Service (NTS) Seoul Regional Office's investigative branch recently completed their regularly scheduled tax audit on YG Entertainment which had begun back in May

Following the audit, the NTS fined the conglomerate a fee of 3.4 billion KRW (~$3.03 million USD) for failing to pay the necessary taxes. It was reported that the NTS looked into YG's business expansions along with the operation of their foreign branch offices. 

Back in 2008, YG Entertainment was also fined 2.8 billion KRW(~$2.5 million USD) for misappropriating employee funds and falsifying numbers on financial statements.

emmm.. am i rude if i say i'm not suprise? because this is not the 1st time big 3 companies had this scandal....YG penalize amount is totally small to be compared to SM tbh...Yg need to fix his account,, please hire one accountant that specialise in this field..i know it kinda hard for big company like them that have alot of overseas work to properly handle their tax correctly in short time....hope after this yg learn the lesson and fix the problem and be a more better company...i already immune with the hate yg and his artist get, so i dont even care about the rude comment from hater.. but yg, i know you pay for the fine but after this please be a good company example and pay your tax properly before you get penalize again...
