    "Owing taxes doesn't mean your broke, or can't pay. It simply means, you didn't pay taxes" You sound like Wesley Snipe's PR person. Remember, celebrities spend money like it's water. Or else they have it tied up in other things, or the true American way. They have gambling debts. Regardless, 99-100 times if they don't pay, there's a reason, cause if they had the money, they would pay and avoid the bad press.

      You sound like Wesley Snipe's PR person. Lmao. Celebs do spend like crazy but if someone is allowed to get away for years without paying, its reasonable to assume that some celebs don't have accountants staying on top of their shit for them. Obviously, alot of folks don't know for themselves the need to pay taxes or we wouldn't see the IRS sharing headlines with so many people lately. I doubt Flav is broke. But I'm sure a milli is gonna scar his bank account.

    most of you dummies dont know anything about taxes. the only get a lump sum of money a year from that they have to pay all their bills. they dont make money month to month like you and me. and when we dont pay our taxes they dont go after us ( not enough money). at the end of the year if they mismanaged their money and cannot pay they will fall behind. the government is slick once you fall behind they wait years to go after so fines can build up.

    News flash- There's no law that states that taxes NEED to be paid. Look it up. Taxes are the biggest theft in history.

      @trooth The more you make, the more taxes you pay. Owing taxes doesn't mean your broke, or can't pay. It simply means, you didn't pay taxes.

    • trooth

      not it means he spent all his money on big houses and can't afford to pay the taxes..
