Tax Evasion Charges Against Wesley Snipes Finds Him Facing Three Years in Prison

The IRS does not discriminate!  If you owe the IRS back taxes, whether it be on your $38,000 income or your $38 million dollar income, the IRS will find you and use the law to prosecute you to the fullest extent for tax evasion.   People often don’t realize that as they avoid taxes over the years, they end up owing the original tax amount plus penalties and interest.  It adds up quickly and before they know it, they owe much more than they feel they are capable of paying.  Ignoring back taxes will not make them go away!  If you owe money to the IRS, especially $25,000 or more, consult a tax relief professional to help you clear your tax debt, potentially reduce what you owe, and lift the tax burden from your shoulders!  Otherwise you may find yourself alongside Mr. Snipes!

Actor Wesley Snipes has been taken into federal custody to serve a three-year prison sentence following his conviction on tax charges.

Snipes, the star of Blade and White Men Can’t Jump, was convicted of willfully failing to pay taxes on $38 million of income for the tax years 1999 to 2001.

Snipes had appealed his conviction on the grounds that some jurors were prejudiced against him. But Judge William Terrell Hodges ruled against Snipes and ordered the actor to prison.

Hodges wrote in his decision: “The defendant Snipes had a fair trial; he has had a full, fair and thorough review of his conviction and sentence. The time has come for the judgment to be enforced.”
