A Florida jury has reached a verdict in the tax fraud trial of actor Wesley Snipes.

We're told it will be read this afternoon.

Snipes and two co-defendants are currently on trial for allegedly failing to file his 2000 federal taxes, for demanding $11 million in tax refunds on taxes he'd already paid, and bouncing checks to the U.S. Treasury. Snipes' attorneys say the "Passenger 57" star is the victim of unscrupulous accountants and sincerely believed he didn't have to pay taxes.
