Wesley Snipes

Wesley Snipes lost his court bid to lower his income tax debt to an affordable sum. A U.S. Tax Court judge ordered the actor to pay $9.5 million in back taxes.

Snipes, who served 3.5 years in prison for income tax evasion, owed the IRS $23 million in back taxes from 2001-2006.

The judge rejected Snipes' request to allow him to pay $850,000 as an offer-in-compromise (OIC) to wipe out his tax debt.

The judge ruled that Snipes did not prove he can't afford to pay back the debt by liquidating his assets (homes, cars, etc.).

This is why you shouldn't believe those slick TV commercials that offer to help you pay the IRS in pennies on the dollar.

The IRS rarely ever approves an offer-in-compromise unless you are destitute and practically living on the streets.

Take it from a blogger who just last week offered to pay the IRS $50,000 in cash to wipe out her debt of over $120,000. The IRS agent laughed in the blogger's face, and said $50,000 wasn’t enough.

    $850k was the best he could do? 2 million would have been more reasonable. I bet he wished he would've been down with filming more Blades originally.

  • Alextra Ballard

    WDH....Didn't Wesley go to jail for tax evasion

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

  • sunni_daze

    Didn't he just go thru this? He really aint paying "theirs" cut

  • gellie

    I bet he wish he had kept his big mouth shut talking about black women.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Dear Wesley:

    Stop playing with these folks. They will take all of your shiet...while you are standing in your driveway in your draws.

    I would say ask Redd Foxx...but when they did him like that...it helped send him to his grave before he even reached 70.

    Getcho life together sir.

    YSIC,

    Kdub.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Well Wesley if I can meet my IRS installment agreement every month I think your azzz can do the same, keep it up you’ll be back in clink before you know it.

  • Coy little wink

    Why did he stop acting? He must be "difficult to work with" ?

    I owed the IRS last year I paid them heffas immechedly

    This year I got a refund...God is good ?

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    What he say about bw?

    I'd be real surprised if Tyler went anywhere near Wesley. Tyler is acutely aware of and is highly appreciative of his targeted demographic. Wesley messed that up a long time ago.

  • WhoKnew

    I saw this story last night and I was like Da-zammmmm, he finna go back to jail. The thing is it was originally $23 million and he tried to negotiate only paying $850,000 and the IRS said kicks rocks but they countered with $9.5 million and Snipes was like I'll see your ass in Court and the judge has now spoken. Still hiding money in da chimney, under the basement floorboard and under the mattress are you? Boy, you betta give them they money for they come and get you AGAIN.

    I cannot read comments from you and keep a straight face @ work. My ribs are hurting from holding it in at them taking his watch and ukulele.???

  • what?why

    Well so some people get their taxes lowered? Nice to know ...

  • Quitedeliteful

    The IRS doesn't play! I owed $13,000 a few years back and damn near died on the spot! I got no discount and had to pay back every single penny. What's sad about it is at the time I found out I owed that much money I didn't even have a job. Uncle Sam didn't give a damn.

  • Michelle Peele

    When Chris Tucker owed he went back on the road and started touring. Said the IRS would be sitting back stage eating chicken waiting for the check. Lol

  • Trey

    never should have gone 'EXEMPT' all that time.....*cough, cough

  • Lady_Elle

    Auntie... after they laughed at the blogger... they probably mentioned that there would be additional INTEREST & PENALTIES accruing daily!

    They will work with you on a payment plan. But... the HIGH interest & penalties are included.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Wesley needs to put in his bid to be in Bad Boys 3 also. He gotta get to work

    I can't believe there isn't a long list of takers!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    After they laughed at the blogger, they told her to file for an abatement to eliminate all those fees. An abatement is offered once in your lifetime.

    You're welcome.

  • Rere

    Sheesh, Damn!!

  • Lady_Elle

    I didn't know about the abatement.
    Good to hear that there are some breaks!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The IRS knows how much money you have, whether it's in your retirement account or investments, or the value of your house or cars. If they know you have money they won't accept an offer.

    Why these black entertainers always have tax issues with the IRS. Know the white entertainers does but compare to black. It’s very unequal

    Why so much $13,000.00 did you own a business then.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Wow, that's cold. The IRS is like the Mafia... maybe even worse. The Mafia might show you a little mercy, but the IRS wont.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Nope. Thought taxes had been taken out for a 401K that I dipped into when I was unemployed. Only city and state taxes had been deducted. I had to pay the Feds back...

  • Yoni7

  • ViolettaBliss

    I have zero sympathy for millionares who don't pay taxes. If the average person has to pay almost 30 % directly to the govt then these fooly wangs need to pay up !

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!! Short periods only, huh???

  • Fire & Ice

    He Betta call one of those Asian women to help him

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It does seem like it disproportionately affects black celebrities. Makes me wonder if maybe the white celebs tend to pay more money for better money managers/accountants etc. to handle their finances (?)

  • Alextra Ballard

    I had a 6 mos abatement on my mortgage after hurricane Irma. No penalties/fees. It was a great help

  • Tinytoon

    Lol, you lost me at ukulele. He died on the set of his show. Elizabeth came and got him.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I don't think most of them are trying to not pay taxes. I just think a lot of them don't really keep a watchful eye on their money like they should, and leave that up to their managers... and by the time they realize there's a problem, they're millions of dollars in the hole.

  • Quitedeliteful

    From what I can tell, he's only worth 10 million. He just might have to move to the Motherland. The one million he has left should go pretty far...

    The white folks pay the tAx black folks don’t understand getting 10million in your hand and YOU have to pay them Instead of it coming out f your check

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    IRS agents are human. They look down on people who earn more money than they do.

  • hottlanta

    Talking bout when he ask us 2 get him a glass of water we get an attitude. U dayum right. Your azz live in florida near the ocean. Open the door n get all the water u want your dayum self.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Not just black entertainers. These folks were also convicted: Martha Stewart, Willie Nelson, Nicholas Cage, Marc Anthony, Annie Leibowitz, Darryl Strawberry, etc. etc.

  • Bashi22

    Wow they still don’t learn the system Tax from they are in business so long. I’m still amazed at the disproportion. White entertainers makes more money. Maybe the whites knows all the loop holes.

  • Y me?

    I agree. And the government also intentionally fails to notify you at earlier time so that the amount you owe can substantially increase. They knew he failed to pay after year 1 but I'm sure they waited until years later to collect additional sums and fees

  • Y me?

    If i were filthy rich i wud probably begrudgingly just let the government withhold the maximum and a certain percentage more so that when tax time came i wud be all clear and perhaps I would even get a refund

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chris Tucker is another actor who owes IRS big time

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Meanwhile it's no secret that the Trump Crime Family essentially scammed hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes with their various schemes... and they've never paid a price for it. Life can be really uneven and unfair sometimes.

  • Scromes1212

    That money is not worth your freedom smh he been to jail he should know that. Just pay what you owe and do a bunch of Tyler Perry Madea films and stack your money back up.

  • ViolettaBliss

    Yeah ok I don't believe that. You'd be surprised at the lengths rich people will go to to hide there money and not pay there fare share!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Part of the problem is that the general population isn't taught how to handle big money.That's why many people who win mega bucks in the lottery go broke. Wealthy families make sure that their wealth stays generational because they teach their children how to put their wealth to work by investing it wisely in stocks, bonds, real estate and other business opportunities. They don't just learn how to make millions, the are taught to master the art of keeping that fortune intact.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I wonder why Hollyweird stop casting Wesley

  • Bashi22

    Yep I know whites get it too but it’s still disproportional and judgements compare to blacks are smaller.

  • Scromes1212

    I don't think it's all on Hollywood. I think some of it is his ego. It's no way he couldn't have got a part in black panther if he really pursued it. I remember he turned down one of those Blade movies back in the day.

  • Alextra Ballard

    It was my fault because they kept sending me letters to make payment arrangements,I kept ignoring the letters,so the garnishment started

  • Quitedeliteful

    That's rough...

  • Quitedeliteful

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Wealthy people hold onto their money until the last minute and make every dime they can off the money before paying the IRS their crumbs. That's why a lot of amateurs, like Wesley, get into trouble. You've got to pay for good tax advise.
    Wealthy people don't get big refund checks because they never give up that much in the first place.

    Certainly that method makes more sense (why give the government an interest free loan?), but unless i 1000% trusted myself/my team i wouldn't risk it. Let them take their piece up front and be done with it. Best case a refund. Worse case at least i didnt neglect to pay millions of dollars to uncle sam.

    Dayum Wesley I can recommend several good accountants. This is getting ridiculous!

    The IRS is easy to deal with. Don’t ignore them and don’t try to get over or get creative. As long as you’re paying something it’s all good. Don’t file late and make estimated payments for non-wage income!

    Trump also went to the #1 Business School and is surrounded by the best tax accountants, financial advisors & tax account lawyers who can apply business dealings to tax laws where it is all legal.

  • J2PC

    Not all rich folks. Otherwise, some rich folks wouldn't be in prison or have served time in prison for evading taxes. It's all about whether or not it done legally.

    They pay taxes, but at a reduced amount because they know about making legal deductions for any loss in their businesses and how to position themselves to legally make claims for deductions in the both their businesses & personal life in addition to donation to charities (or setting up their own charitable foundations) as a tax write-off.

    That is usually done by hiring those highly reputable tax accountants, tax lawyers & financial advisors for their businesses & personal life where they can keep most of their wealth to themselves.

    Taxes will get ya every time. That is why I think athletes no longer need sports agents. Waste of money. This day & time it's all about taxes. We still have people ending up with tax issues. IRS can knockout Floyd Mayweather with just a lil ole Bic pen.

  • TransMichelle

  • Goodii2Shoes

    You've got to pay for good tax advice.
    ------------------------------------------
    *sigh *

    1. Good advisors avoid the entertainment people because those ppl like freebies and feel entitled
    2. Entertainment people come from poor backgrounds which makes them easy to trick or hard to train

    But ur right... if u can convince a good advisor to take on ur entertainment industry bs, pay them well and enjoy the blessings they can enrich you with

  • Goodii2Shoes

    ...it's interesting how a black man can not act like he hate loving a black woman and get away with it. As I type this, I think is it because the non black men know he coming after theirs if he leaving his?& if he isn't capable of loving his own women, they know he can't do right with theirs?..*thoughts*

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Hmm... I mean.. rly?..he said that? smh, but idk if the black woman is keeping her man strong in his position as provider, protector,leader of the household by refusing to cater&coddle to him? (Because other races cater&coddle but they are also the largest consumers of sex worker services. ..adultery /marital infidelities & child sex abuse...)
    Or if black women just don't want to bother with babying a man..

    Mr. Snipes will always be in my top 5! Been LOVING him since I was a little girl! And I realize my attachment to Chadwick B. is only that he reminds me of a young Wesley! ??

  • guest

    He owes IRS Again!?!. I thought he did about 3 yrs in jail for owing taxes.

  • J2PC

    If they were breaking the law, they too would be arrested. It is all about hiring the best tax accountants who are also tax lawyers that knows how to legally reduce taxes owed via any losses inherited along with donations to charities. There is a difference between taxes that your business owe vs. your own personal income taxes. Certain trust funds with a team of top investors can also help reduce personal income taxes owed because it is all about the trust fund.

    When you don't follow the tax laws, that's when you become a criminal. Those on Wall St must have the best tax lawyers. Those who dare to do things differently have been indicted. -don't believe the hype. No one escape paying taxes owed legally.

  • Fire & Ice

    Childddddddd him and his fetish for Asian women ???. He talked so much sh*t about black women, and praised Asian women ?.

  • the guest

    Correct as usual.

    People forget that there are many people, mostly white people, in America who have political, religious, and ideological resistance to paying taxes.

    They belong to anti-tax cults believing zealots who convince them taxes are unjust and that there is no real obligation. There is also a belief that descendants of slaves should not pay taxes. Not all people don’t pay because of laziness or bad business, they are fiercely anti-tax.

    Wesley Snipes was involved in some cult like group that is anti-tax. The IRS is extra hard on him because of his past expressed ideological resistance to taxes. I don’t agree with him having to pay after serving time but they’re making an example of him to send warnings to others.

  • the guest

    Wesley Snipes did not mismanage his money. He does not believe in taxes. He's a part of some anti-tax cult followed by many, but most white Americans.

    That's why living off the grid is so popular with rebellious white people. They don't want to pay taxes and they don't want the government in their business.

    But Wesley Snipes is a black and a celebrity, he can't get away with what rebellious white people get away with.

  • the guest

    It was not depression. Necole became a born again Christian and decided secular entertainment gossip was against her "new purpose" were the words she used in her farewell post.

    So she started a sweet lovely happy thinking hallmark card feel site targeted at black women and it was all the rage (sarcasm).

    Then she learned that the reason she became successful in the first place is that people, even born again Christians low key LOVE secular entertainment gossip.

  • the guest

    He's in some anti-tax cult. You can google it. I think Lauryn Hill fell into that too.

  • the guest

    I remember he said black women smell. Can he get more ignorant?

  • the guest

    It's messed up what they are doing to Wesley. But more whites are targeted and convicted for tax evasion and white collar crimes. I think they like to keep white collar crime white and target blacks for stereotypical hood crimes. The IRS and the judicial system are warped.

  • Fire & Ice

    Yeah he's real ignorant.
