Harry Potter Alum Rupert Grint Loses MAJOR Tax Refund Case — But He's Not The Only Celeb To Have Troubles With Uncle Sam!

Sorry, Rupert Grint!

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the Harry Potter star lost his battle for a tax refund of about $1,300,000 (or £1,000,000). Oof!

As you may know, Grint made MILLIONS playing Daniel Radcliffe's sidekick in the hit franchise based off of J.K. Rowling's books. However, it appears the former child star's accountant attempted to shift eight months of the red head's income into the 2009-2010 tax year. Why?

Well, the financial expert was supposedly trying to cut Rupert's tax bill by 10%. While it's believed Grint moved his accounting date from July 31 to April 5 in order to have a 20-month period placed in a lower tax rate, the A-lister never admitted to doing it — so a judge ruled that she couldn't view his changed date as valid.

Unfortunately, Rupert isn't the only celeb to have struggled with taxes in the past. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the FULL list (below)!
