The tax man is sending action star Wesley Snipes to jail for 3 years!

Snipes has been fighting the IRS for the last decade claiming that he didn't owe the millions they said he did.

But then on Thursday, hours before Snipes was to be sentenced by the government, he cut the Feds three checks for the $5 mill, delivered in court.

WTF?

Fed prosecutors were reportedly so surprised that they first declined the cash.

But by the end of the day, the government took the money AND sentenced Snipes a maximum three-year sentence.

Wow. He got tha MAXIMUM sentence - they are clearly trying to send a message.

U.S. Attorney Robert O'Neill told reporters assembled outside the courthouse, "The sentencing court sends the right message to the American taxpayer — you've got to pay your taxes. Rich, poor, it doesn't matter. We all pay our taxes."

Hey, y'all, got that?

Don't pull a Snipes with the IRS cause you may find your ass in jail!

    hey #93, the reason it's mostly WHITE people not paying taxes timely is because……….. WE (the whitle folk) ARE THE ONLY ONE'S WHO WORK!!!!!!!!!!!
    Most black people just collect welfare, and use that money to smoke crack instead of feed the 25 kids each black bitch pro-creates!!!!!!!!

    kinda sad that he's getting thrown in jail for violating a law that the government refuses to show actually exist… there is plenty of evidence that the average american is not liable to pay an individual income tax to the federal government… but lucky for Uncle Sam people are sheople and follow the herd and do whatever they are told.

    and usually… when someone holds a gun to you and takes your money it's called robbery and when someone uses a threat of danger to get you to pay it's called extortion… but then again people are sheople.

    Were is the law that says you have to pay your IRS taxes??? Were is it? I can't find it? They can't put everyone in America in jail if they did'nt pay your taxes. I wonder why I do?

    Re: too bad YOUR black

    Oh the lies whites tell to make themselves feel superior-so sad. I am black, married, with one child. I have never collected welfare. I come from a family of college educated ppl. Meanwhile, your family is probably a bunch of red-necked, trailer park living, meth smoking, pork eating, non bathing lot of white trash who only have whatever they have because of the color of their skin. You need to get your facts straight. Not all black ppl are on welfare and you know it. You are just spewing hate and ignorance because your parents raised you wrong. Read a book, get a clue, matter of fact, read the bible to get some of that hate out of you. You are on a fast track to hell with your thinking. If you can't do that, do yourself and the rest of humanity a favor and just kill yourself.

    PEREZ, I POST THIS IN RESPONSE TO YOUR ARTICLE ABOUT LAWRENCE KING (25/04/2008.) RIP LAWRENCE AND SHOW SOME COURAGE OF YOUR CONVICTIONS PEREZ—-> You know Perez - you encourage us to fight against LGBT bullying and harassment and yet you make a living from bullying/demoralizing/victimizing/demonizing anyone who does not meet your "standards". You comment and discriminate via appearance, gender, sexuality, heredity and even hearsay. I would be very interested to see if you are brave enough to accept people for who they are. I may not like Heidi M , Mariah C, Tom C, Nicole K, Rosie O etc. but that does not justify a campaign of hatred against them, even if your comments are "just" observations. If you are honestly against name-calling, bullying and harassment - post this comment as a main article, encourage your audience to be tolerant to ALL people. I dare you!

    This is so ridiculous. The lower courts are enforcing a law that is completely illegitimate! There is no law that states that private American citizens are required to pay tax on their income. The Supreme court never gave the IRS new taxable rights. Besides, the income tax that is collected goes towards paying down the federal debt to the Federal Reserve… a private bank! It is a direct unappropriated tax that flies in the face of the Constitution. Snipes is being made an example of but the only example being provided is just how fascist the States is becoming.

  12. this is not racism says – reply to this


    112

    ONE of the reasons racism is kept so alive is because blacks use ANYTHING to start crying racism.

    There is racism of all shapes and colors in this country. Against blacks, whites, indians, hispanics, EVERYONE. But THIS IS NOT A RACE ISSUE WITH WESLEY SNIPES.

    The man didn't file tax returns or pay taxes for years. Many white people (celebrities and non-celebrities) have gone to jail for the same thing. This is an issue about the GOVERNMENT AND THEIR BULLSHIT TAX SYSTEM.

    THIS IS NOT A RACE ISSUE. PLEASE STOP USING EVERYTHING TO START RACE DISPUTES. That's why white people are sick of hearing it. It does NOT apply to EVERYTHING.

    EVADING TAXES IS NOT A RACE ISSUE. JUST ASK LEONA HELMSLEY. THAT WHITE BITCH GOT 16 YEARS.

  14. But he thought he was special says – reply to this


    114

    He's been messing with the IRS for years. U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges said Snipes exhibited a "history of contempt over a period of time” for U.S. tax laws, and granted prosecutors the three year sentence they requested - one year for each of Snipes' convictions of wilfully failing to file a tax return. Snipes was acquitted in February of five additional charges, including felony tax fraud and conspiracy. Snipes' co-defendants, Douglas P. Rosile and Eddie Ray Kahn, were convicted on both those counts. Kahn, who refused to defend himself in court, was sentenced to 10 years, while Rosile received 54 months. Both will serve three years of supervised release. Snipes will serve one year of supervised release. Kahn was the founder of American Rights Litigators, and a successor group, Guiding Light of God Ministries, that purported to help members legally avoid paying taxes. Rosile, a former accountant who lost his licences in Ohio and Florida, prepared Snipes' paperwork.

    From what I understand, Snipes will do three full years with no early release.

    Re: Dinah – It's not about him being black, it's about the money. It's always about the money. Do some research and you'll find if it involves money, no matter what color you are, you're going to do some time. If he had driven drunk he would have gotten off just like Lindsey, Paris, etc. To the government, lives are much less important than money. Please, and I know it's obviously impossible for certain people, but please please quit whining and playing the race card.

    Do you HAVE and education? Do you know how far back you would have to go to get to the 10th generation of someone's family? Legal emancipation didn't happen till around 1868. That means up to that point people could still retain slaves LEGALLY! Therefore someones great grandmother could have been a US slave and I've just gone back 4 GENERATIONS in my family!!!!!

    Wesley Snipes has always dishonored the Black woman through his words and actions. I am happy he was sentenced to three years. Dominant culture, understand this: Race Will Always Play A Factor; acknowledge and understand White Privilege. I will not develop a point based on that truth; it just needed to be said. Anyhow, once again, I, a Black woman, am ecstatic that Wesley Snipes received three years!! His Black skin does not grant him Black Love. He is a disgrace to the Black community.

    Re: ren
    This sounds like the same stupid argument that Snipes used. If this was the case as you state that there is no law stating that people don't have to pay their taxes why is Snipes in jail. Oh because he is black? or better yet because it is a government conbspiracy againt him.

    Just like Americans…Crimes against people such as rape and child molestation, drunk drivers that kill…would get less of a sentence than 3 years, but if it has to to with money, you better believe you're going to jail. You people make no sense.

    Re: bill clinton – Ya.. it's completely unreasonable for the government to imprison someone illegally??!? Do you live in the same country as I do?? and "a complete breakdown of civil services"… have you seen the state of social services.. maybe a complete start over is fucking necessary. And half those services are privatized anyhow… I mean did you really mention health care in your next post?? What percentages of taxes do you think actually goes to these services?… the majority probably goes to paying of the billions and billions of national debt we have. I mean fuck that. If my money was actually going to support someone who really needed it, I would give it to them myself.. Income tax is the governments paycheck, and in case you haven't noticed, they aren't doing a very good job.

    If he was white he would have got 17 years. as far as 10 generations without slavery, you can see a 70 year old black woman with about 5 generations, black girls get pregnant so damn young and then their babies have babies and on and on!

    That's true, they will get you. Pay your taxes. At least file your tax returns. I got audited and they said I owed. But I paid through paycheck deductions.

    One time, I didn't files my tax report for five years. Guess what. They owed me much more than what they said I owed them. I got my refund lickety split, although no apology, even though they levied my paycheck. They are assholes and so stupid. They have their heads up their asses.

I bet half of them don't even believe what they're posting, but do it for a bit of fun because someone always rises to the bait. They are probably less than one percent of us 'cracker' posters. You'll learn to disregard them and see them for what they are.

    $5 Mil was only a tiny bit of what he owes the IRS. There still is state taxes and property taxes employers taxes (he stopped paying the withholding taxes for his employees) He is in a lot more trouble. He may go on trial in Canada too. He will have a lot of time in jail thinking about how he ripped off the governments, state local and federal. He didn't pay taxes that go to schools or roads all because he thought he was above the law. Before sentencing guidelines he could have done 10 times as many years.

    Everyone has to pay taxes and even though 5 mil. is a lot more than most people have to pay the money he has been able to earn evens it out. The three years is really over kill though. That is along time to take out of someones life for just oweing money.Ive always been a fan of Snipes and hope he takes care of him self.
