A report described unpaid taxes, fines and late fees amounting to nearly 900 million yuan.
The official Xinhua News Agency’s announcement on Wednesday ended months of speculation over the fate of the actress since she disappeared from public view in June amid reports she was being investigated for tax fraud.
The report gave no indication as to Fan’s whereabouts but indicated her agent was being held by police for allegedly obstructing the investigation.
Xinhua cited tax authorities as saying Fan would not be held criminally accountable as long as she paid the fines and taxes on time.
The 37-year-old actress, who appeared in the X-Men and Iron Man film franchises, sparked concern among her millions of fans when she disappeared from public view in June.
