Are you a Wesley Snipes fan?
Uncle Sam isn’t right now. From Zap2it:
“The “Blade” actor was indicted Tuesday, Oct. 17 on eight counts of tax fraud amounting to about $12 million swindled from the government in false refund claims and also failing to file tax returns for six years, report news sources.”
Seems that Snipes has teamed up with the wrong accountants:
“According to the indictment that was unsealed in Tampa, Fla., Snipes paired up with the shady firm American Rights Litigators, known for its history of filing false claims in return for 20 percent of the client’s refund. Snipes filed these bogus claims in 1996 and 1997. Two men, enterprise owner Eddie Ray Kahn and CPA Douglas Rosile, are also named as defendants for helping Snipes.”
What’s to become of the famous vampire killer?
“There is an official warrant out for Snipes’ arrest, but so far authorities believe him to be on the lam. Rosile has already turned himself in, but official say that Kahn may have fled to Panama. Snipes faces a maximum of 16 years in prison if he’s convicted on all counts.”
I’m just wondering if he’ll smile for his mug shot like Mel Gibson did…
