Dhoni has paid an income tax worth Rs 20 crore in 2013-14 to emerge as the highest tax payer in individual category in Bihar and Jharkhand region for sixth consecutive year, Principal Chief Commissioner, Patna, R K Rai told reporters.

On the dip in the I-T paid by Dhoni this fiscal as compared to Rs 22 crore he paid last year, Rai said that the drop may be due to reduction in the Team India captain's income from various sources.

Dhoni's income from advertisement sources might have come down this year, Rai said.
