Actor Wesley Snipes could be in biiiiiig trouble. He was indicted Tuesday on eight counts of tax fraud that claim he ripped the government off $12 million in false refund claims during the years of 1996, 1997. He is also being accused of failing to pay taxes for the years 1999-2004. Oh Wesley, why?! The indictment alleges that Snipes reportedly hired accountants that have a reputation and a history of filing false returns so they can get a lot of bank back for their clients. The indictment also says that the company, American Rights Litigators, reportedly receives 20 percent of whatever they get back for their client. If convicted, Snipes could face more than 40 years in prison. As of now, he has not been arrested because according to the IRS, authorities don't know where the hell he is. I'm dissapointed by this story because I enjoy him. My first thought would be to hope that Snipes knew nothing about having an alleged shady, law breaking company doing his taxes for him and that they were hired by someone else on his 'team." Saying that, homeboy should know if he didn't sign a tax return form during those missing years, too. I mean c'mon, I can make only so many excuses for a person. Plus, I always hear stories about celebrities and the fact that even though they might have millions, they can be the biggest cheap asses in the world. Sigh.
