First up are fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who lost their appeal of their jail sentence for tax convictions in Italy on April 30, 2014, and were sentenced to one year and six months in jail for tax evasion. The designers are accused of failing to pay 40 million euros in taxes owed to the Italian government.
According to the BBC, the judge ruled that the designers moved their brand to a Luxembourg-based holding company Gado in 2004 to avoid declaring taxes on royalties of around 1 billion euros.
