Brooke Shields' Taxes -- A Little Nicolas Cagey

1/19/2010 4:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It appears Brooke Shields has a little something in common with Nic Cage -- the actress is accused of stiffing the IRS out of more than $10,000.

brooke shields taxes

According to a federal tax lien filed on December 31, 2009 -- the same day Uncle Sam smacked Cage for $6 mil -- Shields and her husband Christopher Henchy owe $4391.70 in unpaid taxes from 2004 and $5932.50 from 2005.

It's unclear as to why it took the government 4 years to clamp down on the couple.

FYI -- In 2005, Shields had a lot on her mind -- that was the year she got into a major media war with Tom Cruise over the use of psychiatric drugs.

A mere drop in the bucket compared to what our now Sec of the Treasury, Tim Geithner, avoided paying in taxes. Of course, in HIS case, it was just an oversight.
Right.

They probably waited because people have 3 years to amend their taxes. It would be unfair for the IRS to take that window of time away and charge somebody if they still had time to correct them.

time is up it would appear

It's unclear as to why it took the government 4 years to clamp down on the couple. I'll tell you why! Late fees and penalties! Figure they do that with everyone that miscalculated their taxes...we're talking billions of dollars! Easy money for the government to play with....throw away, as in bailouts, etc.
But hells bells people: you wanted change, and now you've got it!
Example: the current health care proposal. The majority of the people do not like what is proposed, and yet under the current admistration, your voice will not be heard. You wanted change, and now you've got it: It will be shoved down your throat. Your voice will no longer be heard.

Easy enough to pay back. She just needs to make a claim against Michael Jackson's estate for that amount and list some ridiculous reason. After all everyone else is getting on THAT gravytrain.

Harvey,

YOU ARE KILLING ME! Wasting space with this story.

Everybody in the country knows that your boy BHO is desperate for money.

Quit wasting space on stupid stories like a rounding error on someone's taxes and talk about the good stories like Greasy Bear filing for chapter 13.

Hey Simone..... Are you looking for a gold star for being first? Get a life you f@cking loser. OOOHH look everyone, I’m first...boy am I special. Maybe they'll name a national holiday after me because I'm so quick and clever. To top it all off you're commenting at 12:00AM.The competition must be very demanding at that time eh! It's like running a one man race and crying I'm first. What possible gratification can you possibly get from being first? You must sweat it out when those other retards Balls / Kooky and that idiot that say Yikes! everytime they post get on line.
Do us all a favour....just make a comment like a normal person and carry on with your day.

Come on, TMZ, do a little research.

By statute, the IRS must wait 3 years after the filing date before proceeding with the demand for the delinquent tax.

Of course, if it involves someone in the entertainment field, they also release a press statement (as they did in this case).
