    This is why I support Obama. These rich folks are allowed to get away with too much money-wise. How hard is it to pay tax? Especially if you can well afford it?!

      The other thing is most entertainers spent first before the year is even up, and when it comes time to owe the government they don't have much left. Best thing to do is wait after you owe before you buy. Also, I don't know how it is in America but in some countries you can file up to 5 years after. Lastly most entertainers never went to school so they don't know how to manage money so they lost from the very start.

      No, as much as I respect MJ, it was his fault. 1- Buying Neverland- electricity, water, staff costs aare already massively high. 2- Buying ridiculous ornaments, zoos, figurines- and probably not paying tax on them. 3- Buying drugs continually. 4-Paying off a greedy ex wife Debbie Rowe. 5-Travel. 6-Staff and personnel. 7-Tax if he paid it. 8-Lawyers for child abuse case- which he brought upon himself, unfortunately. 9-So many other things that come with being a spendthrift.
