Erin Brockovich

2,600 New Problems with CA

8/29/2010 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The real Erin Brockovich (aka not Julia Roberts) may have a tough time lawyering her way out of this one -- according to the State of California, the famed corporation-destroyer owes $2,600 in back taxes.

According to the documents, obtained by TMZ, Erin Brockovich, Inc. -- which Erin personally runs -- owes $2,621.55 in unpaid taxes from 2007 and 2008.

Attempts to reach Brockovich were unsuccessful.

Meanwhile -- somewhere else in California -- Julia Roberts is probably doing something really cool and rich person-y.

What?? Your actually posting she owes a measly 260...0.00 bucks??? She could drop that at dinner and not even notice. That's more of an oversight than anything... Common guys this is cheesy trivial.... If she owed 2 mill..... Ok, then we have a story.

$2,60...0.00? Puhlease! She should call Wesly Snipes and offer to do his taxes because that jackwipe is going down!

What people don't understand is the fact that it is not a jailable offense to not pay your taxes. It only becomes a crime when you fail to take the time to file a return like Mr. Snipes.

Gee, I would hope you guys had enough brains to realize that you really aren't considered a true news venue. Then, to write about a woman's back taxes of only 2100 dollars, which, to many, means nothing, especially a lady who helped so many poor families get millions; doesn't say much for you. It looks like you're trying very hard to make news. You're suppose to report the news, not make it up. Come on!!!!
