Today is April 18, AKA Tax Day (April 15 was a holiday observed by Washington, D.C. called Emancipation Day)!

It's the official FINAL day to turn in your 2015 taxes to the Internal Revenue Service — and if you're thinking that's not such a big deal, well, read on!

Many a celeb has come before you and messed up, cheated, "forgot," or otherwise didn't file taxes for one reason or another, and the federal government came down on them hard!

From taking assets to handing out jail time, the IRS doesn't play around when you don't pay the money you owe.

Not another one!

Uh-oh!

AP reports that Unkle Karl has been accused by French officials of using tax havens like the British Virgin Islands, Ireland, and Delaware (Delaware's a tax haven?!) to hide up to $21.5 million.

The microscope is focused on Karl's Studio 7L bookstore slash photo studio in Paris, which supposedly doesn't make any money, hence not paying any taxes.

But authorities are definitely not buying that explanation!

We'll keep you posted as this case unfolds.

Just a few short weeks after revealing the first policy in his presidential campaign, and then the second, Donald Trump is now on to his third policy as he continues to run for president!!

And you all said he was too vague…

On Monday, The Donald shared his tax plan, stressing that he would eliminate taxes on individuals earning less than $25,000 and couples earning less than $50,000, while also eliminating most deductions and loopholes on the ultra wealthy.

In true Trump fashion, his plan was THE BEST:

"We have an amazing code. It will be simple. It will be easy. It will be fair."

However… there are a bunch of celebrities who sure could've used a tax break or two from The Donald, if only he had gotten here sooner — perhaps The Donald's policies would've made their lives easier?!
