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.
