Sharon Osbourne

Tax Cheat of the Week?

6/14/2009 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0612_sharon_osbourne_credit_tmz_ex-1The Accused: Sharon Osbourne

The Debt: $23,363.16

The Story: According to the State of California, Osbourne was fined nearly $50k for not paying her 2007 taxes -- a year in which she owed $436,026.

She eventually forked over a majority of the cash, but Arnold and Co. claim she's still on the hook for more than $23k.

Meanwhile, California is running a $24 billion deficit.

So, thanks Sharon.

Do any of these celebrities pay their taxes? You folks should really do an expose on this. It's horrible that the state employees are being forced to take unpaid days to save their jobs when these celebutards are spending money on ugly clothes from Ed Hardy and overpriced drinks at the Ivy. I am sure that all of the celebs also place a huge burden on the police between their hordes of fans and drunk driving episodes.

Since most of us know that Arnold IS a republican - maybe we should vote a democrate in next time. All in all, they are all the same. Welfare is their number 1 priority in California. Always has been, never will change. We give all the illegal immigrants free health care, free food, etc, etc, etc. till the state is broke. Do you think congress will cut back on their free services - hell no. Just make the tax payers pay more taxes so we can give them more (like Nancy Pelosi says). Maybe we should all refuse to pay our taxes, they can't put all of us in jail.

nosy mom    

people like her are part of the reason why this state is in this money trouble. everyone hates to pay taxes but we do it because its the right thing to do and it's the law. all this shows is people are greedy, plain and simple.i am not saying that it would solve all of our money problems but it would help if everyone would pay what they are supposed to. suggestion to tmz, show us all celebs famous or not who owe California in taxes. I bet you anything once they are publicized, California would be getting some much deserved checks in the mail.

Hey Low Tax Guy...it seems to me that my hard working white arse is the one working to pay for all the "little latino kids" healthcare and financial support while their illegal parents work under the table and get to keep all their money. If we were to take a good hard look at our welfare system, I guarantee you we could seriously cut off a lot of the fat by not allowing the children of illegal imigrants to be aided. There's your budget fix right there. Not taking benefits away from hard working people who actually get their butts out of bed every day.

It just seems so beyond reason that those who make enough money to warrent that amout of tax due can't afford to pay. Those of us who make in an entire lifetime what they make in 5 years seem to be able to handle it. What's the deal? It's not fair to single Sharon out without ratting out the whole list of wealthy people who owe taxes, but still makes me wonder what's going on...

Just found this on Sharon.
I feel sorry for the poor woman, she has to work to support her totally dysfunctional family. I don't care for these English people, regardless, Cowell etc etc, but give her a break. Imagine having to deal with that man and those awful children.
