A former Pheu Thai party member has filed a petition with the Revenue Department for a tax probe into a 1-million-baht cheque Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwon put in his asset declaration in 2008.

Ruangkrai Leekitwattana said on Monday he wanted the department to check whether the cheque had been cashed and if so, whether Gen Prawit had paid tax for the amount.

"If it was cashed, the amount could be considered a taxable income under Section 39 of the Revenue Code and Gen Prawit should have paid the tax on it by March 31, 2009," he said.
