IRS to Joe Francis: Watch Your Back ... Taxes!

by at . Comments

When he's not beating up Jayde Nicole, Joe Francis certainly isn't paying taxes.

The IRS wants some serious money from the sleaze, filing a lien against him for a staggering $33,819,087.14 in unpaid taxes from 2001, 2002 and 2003.

In 2001, the IRS says Joe didn't pay $17,658,358. In 2002, the delinquency is $11,238,582.14, and in 2003, he owes a much more modest $4,922,147.

It was less than two weeks ago that Francis got out of a sticky situation - and not the kind he's used to - copping a plea in a federal tax evasion case.

Joe responded to the move by the IRS, saying "I have no idea what it is."

He says he does not owe any money and, "This is total retaliation for me beating them in court." Joe says the law the IRS is using hasn't been used in 20 years.

He did not elaborate on what that is.

Joe Francis says Wednesday, the feds seized more than $100,000,000 in his accounts, forcing him to file for personal bankruptcy, which he will do today.

Couldn't happen to a better guy.

Not paying taxes makes you a sleaze? The IRS is a mafia like organization which needs to be dismantled. Go Joe!

True, this guy is sleazy. However, the IRS is the sleaziest of them all. How can someone owe that much in taxes? How much in sales did he do those years? 500 Billion? 500 Trillion?
