Actor Wesley Snipes accused of tax fraud By LARA JAKES JORDAN, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Movie actor Wesley Snipes was indicted Tuesday on eight counts of tax fraud accusing him of trying to cheat the government of $12 million in false refund claims.

Snipes, 44, also failed to file tax returns for six years, according to an indictment unsealed in Tampa, Fla.

Federal prosecutors said that Snipes fraudulently claimed refunds totaling nearly $12 million in 1996 and 1997 on income taxes already paid. The indictment also charged him with failure to file returns between 1999 and 2004.

According to the indictment, Snipes had his taxes prepared by accountants with a history of filing false returns to reap payments for their clients. As part of the deal, the indictment alleges, the firm, American Rights Litigators, would receive 20 percent of refunds from clients.

Snipes faces a maximum of 16 years in prison.

Snipes, who had a home in Windermere, Fla., has not been arrested because authorities don't know where he is, the IRS said.

In 2002, the Justice Department sued a Florida tax preparer who it said filed bogus tax refund claims, including a $7.3 million demand for Snipes.

Snipes was not named as a defendant in that case, but the lawsuit said the preparer's largest claim was an amended income tax return filed on behalf of the actor and dated April 14, 2001. The return requested a $7,360,755 refund for taxes paid in 1997. The return said that Snipes' adjusted gross income was zero, according to the lawsuit.

It said the preparer, Douglas P. Rosile Sr., told clients that only income from foreign sources was subject to taxation. The resolution of that lawsuit could not be immediately determined.

Snipes is the star of the star of the "Blade" trilogy and as well as films such as Spike Lee's "Jungle Fever," and the 1992 blockbuster, "White Men Can't Jump."

In 2005, South Africa refused to admit him after officials said he tried to enter the country with a forged passport.

It seems that blade will be getting ass-raped by maximum security vampires with a titanium dildo for the next 16 years.

Seriously how fucking stupid can you be? Martha Stewart was stupid to play around with 50k and get caught. This is just plain moronic, how can he imagine that he would have "no income" on paper when he is an overpaid actor making millions on a picture.

This just goes to show that some of the people who make the most $$$ aren't necessarily the smartest lightbull in the xmas tree. Also, I can understand independent contractors not filing up a tax return in 2 or 3 years (and then filling them up properly and paying the late penalties later)...

... but 6 fucking years???? And to believe that only foreign income is taxable? That's just fucking retarded!!!

One thing you are wrong about this Bluto. They aren't going to use a titanium dildo on his ass in prison. The butch vampires are going to stuff his ass with garlic until it comes back up his nostrils. That's what they'll do... or so I hope. :5badair:

Haha, yeah I heard this on CNN today. Pretty dumb.

The smartest thing he's done was backing out of that fight with Joe Rogan.

There is a tread about this on Sociocide too, in the article that quotes it refers to him as the star of 'White Men Can't Jump' as if it's the last/most famous film he did.

Actually, Passenger 57 and his accountant Whistler were going for a classic urban legend tax dodge. Too bad it didn't work. http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/1017061snipes1.html FREE BLADE! FREE BLADE! We all know it's a plot by the vampire conspiracy, anyways. Guess he's gonna have to hawk more Total Gyms with Walker, Texas Rump Ranger.

Oh, BTW, they haven't had the trial yet... and "Always bet on black."

I have a lawyer friend [He has no friends.--Ed.] whose skeptical hobby is following this sort of crap from tax "disbelievers" and libertarians--"t3h r34l Libertarians" who think that if the flag in the court room has gold fringe, you must be under Admiralty Law.

No . . . I am not making that up.

His signature quotes one of Bladnarik--whatever--books:


Of course if it is paid for in federal reserve notes or if the bill of sale is in ALL CAPS then the court is a common law fraud and invalid under the ancient fundamental legal principle mei puga et tui visio.

Yeah.

Somethings, like the law and reality, really are not matters of opinion.

It was my opinion recently that the speed limit was 85. The State Trooper had a different opinion. Guess who won?

ST was nice enough to reduce the thing when I did not argue with him . . . an opinion I agreed with.

It just goes to show the "rich and famous" are just as liable to stupid lack of critical thinking as anyone else. "No, Mr. Accountant! I will not listen to you! I will listen to some wack-job whose previous listeners all went to jail for tax evasion! AHA!!"
