So if he's a non-resident alien, where's his green card? Is he here illegally (even though he was born here) so should we deport him back to Florida.  I don't like paying taxes, but I have a lot of slacker and moocher depending on me and many other to pay them to do nothing, so I pay them. A lot of them and this clown thinks he's special and doesn't owe taxes. You know I like his movies but clearly he's dumber than a box of rocks if he thinks he's going to win.

Wesley, don't drop the soap while your in the pin.

Wesley Snipes also tried to leave South Africa on a fake passport in 2005 and is now, according to the Department of Home Affairs here, a "prohibited immigrant". I don't know what he was thinking.

A friend of mine did second unit photography work on Wesley's new film "GallowWalker" and said that he is a pretty nice person to work with.  Smile

What I cannot understand is: can't Wesley just pay his taxes and be done with it, or make arrangements to pay off so much per annum?  Question

Wouldn't it be kind of hard to be a non-resident alien if he was born here?  I mean, he'd have to change his citizenship to another country first.

Non resident alien?  Is he the demographic that Dennis Kucinich was going after?

I always liked WESLEY SNIPES, but any admiration I had evaporated this morning.  Unless things aren't as they seem (when are they ever not?)  I think: Selfish.  Stupid.  Ignorant.  Arrogant.   Lookingup  You're kidding me, right?

I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

Simpleton that I am, I've always thought that if I came into a couple hundred thousand bucks or so and owed taxes on it, it would just be simpler to pay the IRS up front and get a receipt for it, that way you don't have to worry about it, but then I'm not a smart man.

Evidently Snipes got some bad advice from some crooked advisors.

He was acquitted of conspiracy and tax fraud, but the advisorrs were found guilty.  Snipes attorney said he intends to pay his back taxes.
