  • Wow... you would think he could afford to pay someone to do his taxes. All he'd have to do is sign it.

  • bye bye time for the jailbird.
    Hope he likes stripes of the horizontal nature rather than vertical, like in the suits he used to wear to court.

  • He wants to keep all his money. Since he makes so much and you know he has the money to pay the taxes they should put him in prison for a little extra. lol

  • He said on TV that the system didn't work for him. Um, ARE YOU SERIOUS???? I don't like him. Never have. I don't like how he thinks, he thinks way to much of himself. I think that he had said months ago that he did pay someone to do his taxes, and that THEY didn't file. So, why should HE pay for what THEY didn't do? Uh, for the same reason other employers are responsible for their employees?
    The article said he tried to make a down payment, but the judge wouldn't (or couldn't) accept the checks. *giggle* Was that supposed to help him? Get the judge to lower the sentence?
