Jay Chou (周杰倫) participated in Hollywood movie The Green Hornet (青蜂俠) a few years ago and the company gave him a props car used in the movie as a gift.

However, the value he declared to the customs was different from what the customs estimated by 10 times, reports Asian E-News Portal.

Hence, the customs decided that Jay had tried to escape from tax and ordered him to pay more than $600,000 (in HKD).

However, Jay felt the customs had estimated the value to be too high and decided to seek an appeal in the high court at Taiwan.
