Lindsay Lohan can get busted for multiple DUIs, assault, possession of narcotics, failure to appear, flip off a judge and she's still at large. A brother doesn't fill out a few tax forms and he gets sent to federal prison. And look at him. He can't even play Blade anymore without some serious CGI.

Meh, it's a known side effect of cryo prison.

And Snipes?

Actually, might gain him some cred.

Well, you have a point, but didn't Snipes not just fail to pay taxes but also say he didn't believe in them and refused to pay them?

Mugato: A brother doesn't fill out a few tax forms and he gets sent to federal prison.


He got sent to jail because the IRS kept telling him, for years, that he had to pay his taxes.  He didn't just forget to fill out a few forms, he deliberately engaged in fraud to avoid paying taxes.  He declared himself a "non-resident alien" of the US and as such he didn't have to pay taxes.  He didn't file tax returns for five years even though he earned quite a lot of income each of those years.

What's truly stupid is that the government approached Snipes before he was indicted to try and work out a plan to sort out his back taxes, and Snipes rebuffed the offer.  Snipes went to jail because he did everything short of shiatting on the judge's desk during the investigation and trial.
 
2013-04-06 12:58:20 AM
Doh! -I wasn't finished!

Good for Snipes for taking a stand and serving time for refusing to pay taxes?

Or stupid of him to not just pay up?

I have a feeling that not only does he still owe those taxes - unless the government has already seized some of his property and sold it at auction, but he probably could have been a lot more comfortable outside of prison and if he had just said fark it, take my money he probably wouldn't have served any time at all.

Does he get any street cred for his stint in prison? Not really. He was in prison for earning too much money and refusing to pay taxes.

He DID eventually try to pay up once the trial started, but at that point it was too late.

Well, that sucks for him. I really don't know much about the situation, but I thought he was being a dick about it and claiming he shouldn't have to pay. I might be wrong about that, but if he tried to settle, I don't believe he should have served any time in prison.

I remember a larry king interview with him. Claimed he had someone else representing him in tax law. That person was involved and gave him assurances. And got him in trouble.
They kinda hunted after him.

Not sure how much he deserved what he got.
Its been awhile but the case seems strange.

Plus he didn't pay on millions of dollars. I think that was what set off the judge and/or jury.

Oh, he was being a dick.  The government tried to settle with him before he was even indicted, and he told them to fark off.  Then he was a jackass during the entire case, demanding that the government "prove" that he had to pay taxes since he declared himself a non-resident alien living in the US.  Once it became readily apparent that his defense wasn't working, THEN he tried to settle.  At that point, it was too late.

Prosecutors offered him a deal early, he said no, then he did a "fark you" dance for a year while the case proceeded, then at the very, very, VERY end he tried to settle, but at that point the prosecutors weren't having any of it.  You do not have a right to a plea bargain.

CSB time. I worked at a nightclub in Orlando either right before or during his trial down this way. He came in a few times and never drank. His entourage drank minimally, not much at all considering we gave them a VIP booth and offered a bottle of whatever they wanted for free. He tipped the waitress enormously for basically two alcoholic beverages and a bunch of juice. I can see why he's broke. Still, really damn nice guy for the maybe twenty to thirty minutes I got to talk with him over 3-4 times at my club.

Another CSB for you:

I met Snipes at San Diego Comic Con in 2010. This was shortly before he went to prison. He was there promoting some comic book or other. Some vanity project he had stuck his name on, I forget what it was. The signing was only scheduled for an hour but he had an absolutely huge line of fans waiting. He stayed and signed for everyone (well, at least until it got to me, I stopped caring after that). He was talking and joking with everybody which only made the signing go on longer but it seemed like he was having a great time. He's still a dumbass for not filing his taxes but he was great with his fans.

/On the flip side I remember seeing Gene Simmons at a similar Comic Con promotional signing and it looked like it caused him physical pain every time he had to sign something and not get cash for it.

Look I get the paying taxes thing.
 On one hand it's paying for a functional government and services.
 On the other the government is dysfunctional and the spending is crazy.
These babies at $18,000.00 per hour are flying Obama to Hollywood for fund raisers ( I thought he won already !)
Biden to Paris and London for $500,000.00 hotel bill
Kerry /Clinton world Tour 2004-20016 handing out millions of dollars.

So maybe it not real money when it's spent . Only real when it's collected.

I know, right?

Why can't our president just fly coach on Southwest and stay at the Motel 6 (or one of those hostels when he's in Europe) ?

I mean, I get why other Presidents couldn't. But this guys just seems so.... undeserving.

Also, I heard he paid $15.00000000 for a burger at that uppity non-fast-food burger place he likes.

$15.00000000 of taxpayer money!
And meanwhile Michelle is spending billions on clothes. Disgusting.

Maybe it's not real money when it's spent, maybe it's only real money when your talking about Obama.

Snipes     = pays NO taxes, goes to jail

Romney   = pays taxes, finds legal tax shelters just like every other pres. candidate before him as well as the current president.

John Doe = pays taxes whilst exaggerating deductions and dependents, doesn't invest in legal tax shelters, risks the threats of being audited believing 
                   they're too small and therefore, invisible.  Gets audited anyway.  No jail time.


There.  I fixed it for you.
