Wesley Snipes owed taxes on $38 million (That’s a lot of cheddar)

January 11th, 2008 // 46 Comments

Wesley Snipes faces trial for tax fraud on Monday and the IRS has revealed documents that show the actor failed to pay taxes on $37.9 million in income from 1999 to 2004. On top of that Wesley Snipes also tried to get fraudulent tax refunds for almost $11 million, according to Reuters:

Snipes, 45, was charged in a 2006 indictment along with a known tax protester and a former accountant whom the U.S. Justice Department said had been barred by a federal court from preparing other people’s tax returns.
The tax fraud occurred at a time when Snipes was signing movie deals worth more than $10 million each for “Blade II” and “Blade: Trinity,” according to the prosecution’s summary.

If Blade’s not paying his taxes, than neither am I! It’s a revolution, baby! WOO!!

If it makes you feel better, the Superficial Writer’s “revolution” only made it five steps to the employee lounge where he successfully dared our intern to eat a bunch of shrimp leftover from Christmas. On a related note, condolences to the family of Jimmy “Where’s my coffee, bitch?” Gunderson. He’ll be missed.

    Nice hair Wes.

    Is it cheddar or “chedda”? In any event, any guesses on how this will be spinned that he’s an innocent victim of Da Man and not at all responsible for willfully trying to neglect his civic duty?

  8. Gerald_Tarrant

    Auntie – I called Al Sharpton (he’s my speed dial #2) and he clarified that a white person using the term “chedda” is racist. “Cheddar” is the appropriate alternative for white people to use. Everyone knows Al Sharpton is the definitive answer for all things racist.

  9. woodhorse

    I wonder if he has white patent leather shoes on to go with that jacket?

  10. #7 – Good call, I was just about to correct the Fish. It’s cheddah, nigga.

  11. Mdiz

    Looks like Wesley’s money train is taking him straight to jail, ZA ZING!!!!!!

    Next thing to deal with for Mr. Snipes: Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin sues him for ‘Hair Infringement’…

    White men can’t jump. Yet, blacks, even muti-millionaire half-actors, don;t pay ‘they’ taxes. Interesting.

    ‘Ain’t no mawfuckin’ body gon’ tell Wesley Snipe how he live. Wesley Snipes! I’m an actor! I was in Blade; I was a vampire that killed other vampires. Yeah! It’s really a movie.. I’m not lying! Kris Kristofferson was in Blade too.

    Kris Kristofferson! You know, he was in Pee-Wee’s Big Top Adventure. He was the guy that ran the circus? He was married to a fairy. He’s a musician or some bullshit in real life! You really don’t know who I am? Goddamn.. Fo’real, I’m an actor.’

    #12 – Shucks ma’am, ’tweren’t nothin’.

    #15 – Posting of public information is not a violation of any privacy act. And thanks, so far I am having a great day. It’ll stay great as long as Heidi Montag or Paris Hilton aren’t the stories that top the Fish all weekend.

  20. my comment

    10 million dollars for ‘Blade’ sequels.

    That’s just depressing.

    This happens because celebs do not pay their own bills let alone get them in the mail. They pay accountants to do it. In some cases like Sharon Stone or Alan Funt, they get screwed over by them. Funt got cleaned out by a crooked accountant or the accountant forgets to do something like their clients taxes because they are skimming off the top. This is why many celebs go broke because someone else is reading their bills.

    Rule #343 of being a millionare celeb, pay your own bills. Keep track of your own money.

  22. Bigheadmike

    Throw him in the clink for a little while.
    If I did not pay my taxes that is what would happen to me.

  23. Andrew

    Oh Noooo, he ‘has forgotten to take his daily anti tax Serum

    Poor Tax Guys..
    They obviously do not KNOW WHO THEY ‘RE FUCKING WITH!

  24. MonkeyMan777

    Does anyone else notice he’s making the “magnum” face pose from the movie “Zoolander”?

  25. woodhorse

    @24 I thought that was the Sears catalog Men’s section male model pose. My bad.

  26. whatever

    Somebody please get him some lotion….brotha is looking ashy

  27. david

    I miss Jimmy.

  28. Mothafucka went and bought the last green leather 70s style shalimar jacket. Fuckhead… what’s my Shaftkenstein monster supposed to wear now???

  29. Fish Dude is not in the Zone

    He better fire that accountant. Also if he was charged in 2006 what does this have to do with now. This is the past, Fish, go find us some NEW stuff, not something from 2006 or 1956 or 1856…

  30. Sauron

    I hope he’s getting paid in euros because that means he owes the tax ‘only’ 19 million lolz.

  31. Lowlands

    That’s quite a shitload of money.It’s pretty difficult to hide this amount of money from the IRS in any country.He really has balls.

  32. cooper

    It’s a bit strange I saw his nice pictures on ‘interracial loves. com’ yesterday. His profile is sincere, sexy and attractive with his hot pics and nice blogs. Is he looking for interracial new friends or loves?

  33. Reggie Bush

    Man is looking old and FUGLY.

  34. S

    He used to be one of my favorite action actors for a short while. Now he just looks tired.

    Since this is an old story, perhaps you could have found out if the IRS investigated the accountant. If Snipes story is true, they should charge the accountant and fine Snipes a lot less. But maybe Snipes is just trying to pass the blame.

  35. totally overated

    @ #3 – They did tell him he was black and he replied “Fool, I’m purple!”

  36. me

    This is what happens when you give a n1gger everything. They will always steal no matter what. It’s in their DNA. They have no respect for anyone or anything. That’s why the monkeys can’t run a government. They all steal to the point where chaos rules.

    We could give every welfare spook 10 million dollars and they’d be begging and threatening us for more the next year.

  37. gigi

    my heavenly Father! when will Wesley Snipes learn how to moisturize properly?!? Lubriderm, Body Shop, Neutrogena whatever is fine! just get a nice hydrating product [free of mineral oil, and get a handle on it man!! damn! [some blistex would serve him well too... perhaps some minty flavor to entice the asian ladies he loves so much]

  38. jimm23

    so cool guys, i saw his blog with hot pictures on http:// interracialsingleonline.com . It is sincere and attractive. So do those famous stars who also tried to seek some hot girls for interracial relationship or joy. Nice to enjoy how raze they are..

  39. *Sigh*

    Fuck taxes! Fuck the IRS! My hubby and I both had ZERO exemptions on our W-4′s last year (you know, because it says RIGHT ON THE FUCKING FORM to put zero if you’re married to avoid having too little taxes taken out) and we still ended up owing $1900. So, all year long we’re paying about 26% of our checks to the IRS and at the end of the year what do we get…another fucking bill! I even called the IRS to find out if things had been miscalculated, but nope, $1900. Their advice? Have a kid (nice and sensitive for a couple who can’t have kids). And how is it that bitches on welfare get tax returns? What kind of bullshit is that? How the fuck do you get a refund on a fucking handout? Go ahead Westley, it makes me feel good that he swindled the government out of a shitload of money.

  40. *Sigh*

    Oh and me @ 4:04 PM…eat a dick. My Black ass works hard and pays taxes.

  41. YERtleThETURtlE

    Word on the street is, he isn’t getting any new roles offered due to a little problem with a coke pipe.

    *wink*

    Good for him. There is no law that says you have to pay a tax on your labor. It’s unconstitutional. The IRS is an illegal mafia the survives on fear. Wow, sounds like the government.

    Take your heads out of the sand, do some research and learn what the money from paying your income tax REALLY pays for. Stop being a bunch of sheep with this idea it’s what “Good honest Americans” do. The entire IRS is run on lied.

    My friend told me that i can find him on “wealthybeauty.com”. Has anyone find him yet on that site? I saw your profile there few weeks ago.It’s said he is interested in dating some beautiful woman there.

  45. Susie

    Well, he didn’t really commit any fraud, because there is NO LAW written anywhere that states that United States citizens are required to pay a federal income tax. People just assume that we have to pay them, because people have been doing it for so long.

    Ever heard of the 16th ammendment? No new taxes? Income taxes never exsisted before then. And if you want to use the argument ” well then how are we suppose to pay for the services we recieve from the government?” look at all the other taxes that we pay. INCOME TAXES AE ILLEGAL!

  46. Hi Guy’s,
    is the appropriate alternative for white people to use. Everyone knows Al Sharpton is the definitive answer for all things racist..
