It’s tax day and what better of a day then for the US Gov. to release it’s recommendation on the fate of actor Wesley Snipes. Now as we remember a few months Wesley was convicted in on three misdemeanor counts of willfully failing to file federal tax returns for 1999-2001. Each count carries a maximum sentence of one year. Snipes was acquitted on two felony charges of filing false claims and fraud in seeking millions of dollars of refunds in other tax years.
U.S. Attorney Robert O’Neill was the author of this court document and stated that Snipes should service a max sentence of 3 years and pay a $5 mil fine for failing to file his taxes. He uses the term, “brazen defiance” several times to show that Snipes failed to file because he just didn’t want to.
So please don’t just sit there, go file and pay your taxes!
