DMX Charged With Major Tax Evasion — But He's Not The Only Celeb To Face The Wrath Of The IRS!

Filed under: Legal MattersDMXTax Troubs

no title

UPDATE 6:47 P.M. EST: DMX has been released from jail on Friday after posting $500,000 bond (an amount he needed two co-signers for). According to TMZ, the rapper has pleaded not guilty to all 14 counts of tax evasion. A judge has also issued travel restrictions, prohibiting him from leaving the NYC area. Stay tuned…


DMX turned himself in to the feds Thursday evening after getting hit with 14 counts of tax evasion.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the rapper could face could face up to 44 years in prison for hiding his income over several years and owning the IRS about $1.7 million!

According to the indictment, the 46-year-old didn't file taxes for ANY of the millions he made from his chart topping songs, performances and TV show appearances over the years.

The docs say DMX, real name Earl Simmons, went out of his way to evade taxes, including avoiding personal bank accounts, setting up surrogate accounts, and paying large expenses in cash.

Simmons even allegedly refused to tape his Celebrity Couples Therapy appearance in order to rip off the IRS what was owed. After the proper taxes had been withheld in the initial check, X demanded that producers issue him a new check for the full amount of $125,000 — which he got!

But it looks like he'll finally have to pay up — just like these other celebs who have dealt with tax troubles.

Congrats to The Situation!

In a new interview with People, Mike Sorrentino opens up about his difficulties with drugs and with the law. In case you hadn't heard, the Jersey Shore star was indicted this month on evading taxes for nearly $9 million of income.

Considering how his last tax troubs hurt his recovery process, there was reason to worry.

The reality star was actually sober for nearly two years after going to rehab in 2012. But after being charged with tax evasion for the first time in 2014, he needed a way to cope.

Now, he didn't turn to drugs immediately. Obviously tanning and laundry aren't that good for relieving stress, but the gym was. Until he worked out so hard he cracked his ribs.

It was the painkillers prescribed by a doctor that sent him back down the path of relapse. He laments:

Donald Trump's Tax Accountant May Not Know Who Leaked That Tax Return But Points Out It WAS A 'Client Copy'…

no title

It would be one way to get ahead of a scandal…

Rachel Maddow's big reveal of Donald Trump's tax returns was a total bust — not only were they incomplete, they were from all the way back in 2005!

Frankly, they were kind of boring.

But what if that was intentional..??

We aren't going full tin foil hat here, but what we do know is that the select 2 pages from Drumpf's 2005 1040 were anonymously — and unexpectedly — delivered to David Cay Johnston.

Why would someone give those sensitive documents, which contain nothing more scandalous than the fact so many people were willing to provide the then-reality star with income, to a Pulitzer-winning tax analyst? They must have known he'd find nothing.

So… who benefits?

In this case, only one person: Trump himself.

He's ALSO the only person who is supposed to have had control of the tax document.

Trump's former tax accountant Jack Mitnick explained on Inside Edition Wednesday that the tax return shown by Maddow on her MSNBC show was clearly marked "client copy," which means it would have been delivered at the time directly to Trump, not to the IRS.

The accounting firm he used would not have had a version of the "client copy" either; he explained:

The 41-year-old apparently also owes $149,511 in Missouri state taxes from 2013! That means the artist is looking at over $2.5 MILLION in debt!

And while sources say the hitmaker is working with tax authorities to settle this money mess, his fans are also doing their part to help!

On Monday, SPIN did the math, and realized that Nelly needs 287,176,547 streams to pay what he owes. So, plenty of people flocked to Twitter to get the masses to #SaveNelly, posting:
