Judge

Gets Snippy at Snipes

8/5/2008 12:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wesley Snipes is running ... out of legal appeals.

The convicted tax cheat asked a judge last month to excuse him from paying the Feds' legal fees of more than $200K for his tax evasion case. The judge just ruled on that part of the case last week, and he slammed the door on Snipes, calling his objections MOOT (his capitalization). So now he'll have to pay.

Snipes was sentenced to three years in the big house for tax evasion, but he's free on bail while his case is being appealed. He recently was allowed to leave the country to work on a movie.

Who the hell does this guy think he is? First, he doesn't pay his taxes and now he doesn't want to pay the legal fees on a case that wouldn't have happened if he didn't try to beat the government and the USA of monies due. He is a mediocre actor at best!

well there is no law stating that one has to pay income tax on wages or earnings. SO just paying something none of us are required to pay is ridiculous.

It is well understood by those in the know that the constitution says only profits say from a business are taxable. Your wages and labor are your property and are not taxable.

All that pay taxes are uninformed that just go along with it.

Do not believe me. Aaron Russo who was a major fim producer made a film called freedom to facism that proves that even IRS agents will tell you people volunteer to pay taxes on their labor and waqes there is no law.

brainofjfk Thats the defense he tried in court. You see where that got him and everyone else that has tried it.

Seems the courts don't agree with Aaron Russo or 99.999% of the population.

Does this apply to McCain as well? He didn't pay the taxes on his LaJolla condo either, or is he considered "above everyone else".

CELEBS HAS NO COMMON SENSE OR DO THEY PAY IN FULL CASH    

# 1 , 2 , 5, is totally correct .............Pay your taxes.

I knew a man who didn't pay his taxes

IRS froze his account .

he couldnt get money out of it .

it's best to pay taxes and be done with it .

Sure we all don't want to pay ours , but

the differences between Us and Snipes

we're using our common sense , he isn't.

Wrong answer- your honor- the video footage clears me- the money is mine- and anyone tries to lie on me will be arrested- plain & simple- I am taking the money- not faking my death- and any attempts to lie will be proven as lies- I suggust you realize that those who owe me are giving me the money and I am not faking my death- the money is mine and I simply will not tolerate lies-- your a sore loser and the sooner you learn to take no for an answer the better off you will be.

you are required by law to pay income tax. the internal revenue code is found in the united states code, a collection of laws
which state......
There is hereby imposed on the taxable income of every individual...

snipes is a very good example of people thinking they are superior to others.
