Celebrities Busted For Tax Evasion

Paying taxes is a bummer. It’s the worst anxiety we can feel on an annual basis. However, for us, if we don’t pay our few hundred or thousand dollars, it becomes a mild pain the rear. But when celebrities miss their taxes, they end up with handcuffs and jail time.


Let’s take a look at some celebrities that fell victim to tax evasion, shall we?

Wesley Snipes – He went to the clink after evading $17 million by claiming he wasn’t a US citizen even though he was born in Florida.

Lauryn Hill – L Boogie just refused to pay taxes for years thanks to something about her being crazy. Now she faces jail time.

Beanie Sigel – He’s heading to jail soon, too for failure to pay off his taxes from his Roc days.

J. Lo and Marc Anthony – They had a little mishap and ended up owing $2.5 million. Good thing they got that worked out. Poor Casper would be sad.

Martha Stewart – She never filed her house on her taxes because she just didn’t think it was important enough. WTF. Must be nice.

John Cena – He just had to pay off a few million in taxes, but it was apparently his wife’s fault so he divorced her. Problem solved.
