Two Australian siblings who refused to pay income taxes for eight years because it went “against God’s will” were reportedly ordered to fork over $1.4 million to Australia’s tax office this week.
Rembertus Cornelis Beerepoot and Fanny Alida Beerepoot told the court they hadn’t filed since 2011 because “We don’t own anything because we are [God’s],” BBC News reported.
