Accio! Harry Potter Star Rupert Grint Hopes To Summon £1m Tax Refund – Forbes

As J.K. Rowling’s Ron Weasley, Rupert Grint faced a number of challenges, including keeping the Philosopher’s Stone from Professor Quirinus Quirrell, finding and destroying the Horcruxes of Lord Voldemort with Harry and Hermione, and fighting in the Battle of Hogwarts. Grint, however, has come up against a Voldemort-sized obstacle in the form of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC). Grint has gone to court seeking a refund worth approximately £1 million ($1.33 million U.S.) as part of a tax dispute. The dispute focuses on Grint’s choice to use an accounting period shorter than 12 months between 31 July 2009 and 5 April 2010. Grint made millions as part of the Harry Potter franchise, shooting the final films, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2, in 2009 and 2010. Grint’s take was said to be just below co-star, Emma Watson, who was named Hollywood’s highest paid female actor by Vanity Fair after pulling in a cool £20 million ($26.60 million US).
