Harry Omeros is facing a lawsuit for unpaid taxes from 2011 to 2016.
GOLD Coast identity Harry Omeros has been hit with a lawsuit claiming he owes the taxman almost $5 million.

Omeros, a scion of the Glitter Strip’s prominent restaurant family the Omeros Bros, was arrested last October and charged over an alleged boiler-room fraud.

Police alleged he fleeced at least $400,000 from 15 victims through cold-call schemes that offered investments in the sharemarket, binary trading, sports betting, property and eBay businesses.

They also claimed Omeros threatened in a recorded phone call to shoot one alleged victim in self-defence if confronted, adding that taking his money was the “best thing I ever did”.

Now the Australian Taxation Office has filed a Supreme Court suit alleging Omeros owes $4,884,162.24 in unpaid income tax and interest.

The writ, filed this month, alleges the tax is owing for 2011 to 2016.

The claim was served on Omeros at the luxury Sovereign Islands mansion listed as being owned by his father, Nick.
