How rude! How responsible!

Jodie Sweetin hasn't had the easiest go of it since her days of playing Stephanie Tanner on Full House, but things are looking up!

The 31-year-old actress should be feeling AH-Mazing today because she's finally free and clear with the IRS! She had owed Uncle Sam $53,000 in back taxes from 2009, but she just paid it off and settled her debt completely!!

Sweeeeet! Aside from the Full House reunion we're all still waiting on, this is the greatest Tanner-related news we can imagine!!

Between splitting from her husband and the rumors of a return to rehab and drug relapses, 2013 was tough on Jodie.

It's a new year now, though — life is looking much brighter! Hooray for clean slates!

Dolce & Gabbana may no longer exist if they're forced to pay their hefty tax evasion fine!

They say two things are certain in life: death and taxes.

But we never would've guessed that taxes could mean certain death for Dolce & Gabbana!!!

Domenico Dolce and Sefano Gabbana are in an ongoing legal battle over tax evasion charges after being found guilty last month.

In addition to the 20 month jail sentence (which they'll never serve), the designing duo were fined $440 million, but if the verdict is not overturned and they're forced to pay up, they’ll have to shut down their world-wide fashion empire!!

NFLer Terrell Owens Pays His Taxes…FINALLY!!!

terrell owens pays tax debt

Yay for doing the right thing!

You may remember that Terrell Owens had a little trouble with Uncle Sam earlier this year, but he’s finally manned up and taken care of it.

The NFLer owed $430,000 in taxes, so they put a tax lien on him, but that that’s all over now!

Owens paid his debt and as of June 27th, he and the IRS are a-okay!

Which is good news for T.O. because it’s hard to revive an NFL career when you’re behind bars.
