Feds Bill Snipes for Making Him Pay

Wesley Snipes already owes almost $3 mil in back taxes -- and now the feds want to milk him for $200K more to pay the price for throwing him in the slammer.

The government just sent a bill to the judge in the case, reports the Orlando Sentinel, and getting Snipes convicted wasn't cheap. The total was $217,363 -- and can you believe that almost all of that, $193,000 to be exact, was just for the documents?

Maybe Wes can pony up -- if nothing else -- for the $138.18 that it cost to make "certified color copies" of certain exhibits. He's free on appeal, and his attorneys have officially objected to the fees.
