Paul Hogan'Crocodile Dundee' star Paul Hogan lashed out at the Australian tax office in an interview Tuesday on the Australian television's 'A Current Affair' after being told he couldn't leave the country until he pays off his debts, Reuters reports.

"I can't pay 10 percent of what they're asking ... bugger 'em!" the actor said.

When the 70-year-old actor landed in Sydney on Aug. 20 to attend his mother's funeral, he was slapped with an order by the Australian Taxation Office demanding he pay millions in back taxes if he wants to leave the country and return to his home in Los Angeles, Hogan's lawyer, Andrew Robinson, said last week.
