Tax charges can be considered grisly, right?
Stephen Baldwin, #2981 of the Baldwin Brothers, has been arrested in NY for a REPEATED failure to file personal income tax returns! Check it out: he didn't file returns for the years 2008, 2009, and 2010, owes NY state more than $350,000 in back taxes, and all of this is considered a felony!
Here's what the D.A. said:
"At a time when Rockland County and New York State face severe fiscal shortfalls, we cannot afford to allow wealthy residents to break the law by cheating on their taxes. The defendant’s repetitive failure to file returns and pay taxes over a period of several years contributes to the sweeping cutbacks and closures in local government and in our schools.”
Celebs SHOULDN'T be getting breaks when they break the law!
If he's convicted, he could spend 4 years in jail. Or, in other words, be sent to a resort in Cabo because of overcowding and never feel what a real jail is like. Ha!
