Tax Evasion Celebrities
I saw an article on tax evasion celebrities and it caught my interest because I was an accountant. I felt sorry for Judy Garland and Buster Keaton but boy was I happy to see Richard Hatch on the list. That guy always annoyed me. I was overseas during the whole survivor craze and I came home to see him do some cheezy interview and well...I never had much respect for reality TV and Richard Hatch is the icon of that crap.
Some will call me out of touch with American culture. Think what you like, but don't tell it to my face 'cuz I'll give you a tongue lashing on you being out of touch with a real life.
So, Richard did not declare his $1,000,000 winnings from Survivor on his taxes. National TV! Does he think the IRS folks don't watch TV? 4 years and 3 months in the slammer for tax evasion. Best news I've heard all day.
Wesley Snipes is the guy that triggered interest again...too bad, I kinda like his movies after a 6 pack. But the can is the place for people who blatantly avoid millions in taxes.
