Hearts settle tax bill in full
Wednesday 15 February 2012
Hearts have announced they have now paid an outstanding tax bill in full.
A winding-up petition was presented to the Court of Session by the Advocate General for Scotland on 27 January and published on 7 February, with HMRC giving the Edinburgh club eight days to pay. Last year, Hearts were forced to pay a bill in the region of £500,000 to defeat a similar order, while others were served in 2009 and 2010.
A statement read: "The outstanding amount due to HMRC in relation to the recent winding up notice has been paid in full."
