Nic Cage Facing Off With the IRS -- Not Vice Versa

2/27/2008 11:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nic CageA news agency issued Nicolas Cage an apology this week after it erroneously reported the "National Treasure" star was being investigated by the IRS. In fact, it's the other way around. Whoops!

It turns out that Cage, with the help of super lawyer Marty Singer, was the one to challenge the IRS over some of their decisions about his production company, Saturn Productions.

World Entertainment News Network distributed a story titled "Cage Accused of Tax Fraud" and later apologized for it, saying, "WENN regrets this error and apologizes to Mr. Cage for any distress this erroneous article caused."

Hey KIMMYT, I found this in a legitimate dictionary:
Lame - adj - Feeling important by writing "First!!!!!!" on a message board.

FYI - Legitimate = real

Thanks TMZ for giving the correction bold coverage. When a person's reputation is besmirched by an article...and it turns out that article is totally - completely - erroneous.....tis nice to see the same sized story cover the truth. You guys do lots I'm not to supportive of -- kudos for doing the right thing with Nick.

Another stupid story by TMZ's uneducated chimpanzees    

This is now the 2nd time that these WENN idiots have gotten it wrong. First, they attributed a "hitler was a good guy" comment to Will Smith, now this. If those morons don't understand the concept of "due diligence" (or, for the brain damaged idiots at WENN, "double check your story & sources"), then they have no business pretending to be journalists. Morons...
