Hello Pat Riot,

I really like what you have to say... I never looked at it that way before.. there is a hell of a lot of taxing going on... where are the benefits in all of them... really??

13.8 million x 38.6% (top tax rate last I heard) = $5,326,800. Pretty serious amounts... HOWEVER, the IRS will tack on at least double that amount in interest and penalties. So Wesley paying 5 million is inconsequential to the IRS. They won't be happy until they get it all and more.

Heck, for a 1 million bail, I would expect Wesley to find a no-extradition country and move the heck out of the US.

While I do agree that the services this country offers are worth paying for in taxes... I also believe that those taxes should be constitutional... Avoidable in that you don't buy what is taxed, but everything bought is taxed. So when anyone buys ANYTHING they pay their fair share, rich & poor alike. No tax evasion is possible if your taxes are paid every time you buy anything.

Seriously? Not to complain too much - but maybe celebrities should pause to think before they buy that $400,000 car, that 2.5 million dollar bling ring, or that $6 million dollar house you reside in about 1/12th of the year. And why is it that back taxes catch up with us common folk a lot quicker than they do with you savy celebs? You can have a tarrot card reader on retainer but you can't afford an accountant?!
