Wesley Snipes -- One Week 'Til Prison

12/1/2010 4:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's the final countdown for Wesley Snipes ... the Feds just set a deadline for the actor to check into a Pennsylvania prison ... by next week.

Snipes is due to begin his three-year prison sentence for tax evasion on December 9th.  And according to documents obtained by TMZ, Snipes got an ominous warning from the U.S. Marshals Service: "Failure to report at the designated place and time may result in additional criminal charges."

Snipes has appealed several times ever since he was convicted on tax evasion charges back in 2008 -- but looks like it's the end of the road.

Imagine making ALL that money...being paid to play total **** roles and NOT paying taxes on that and to ultimately end up going to jail because of your stupidity. What I wouldn't give to have had that money...I would have purchased a nice house on Lake Michigan in Saugatuck, MI. I would be living a very relaxed and eventful life without all the Hollywood bullsh*t. I wouldn't be spending ANY time in prison in a about a week or so. Have fun loser.

From Day ONE I've said this is wrong Wrong WRONG! He goes to jail for tax evasion (not his fault for hiring the wrong accountant) for 3 YEARS (no victim=no crime right?) yet Blohan and Parasite and the rest of these privileged white trash starlets get slapped on the wrists for DUI and drug possession and kidnapping, etc.

WTF people?!?!?! WTF is WRONG with society today jeBUS!!!

i dont fault mr. snipes for being ill-advised to not pay his taxes. he was misinformerd truth and this occurs to many people not only snipes. i pray his fast return back to a normal life once this is over for him. he's a great actor and ive enjoyed most not all.. but most of his films. its a shame to see a very talented actor with history greats on his resume to be locked up for something such as taxes.. although he should have paid attention to what happened to black comedian/actor Red Foxx and Richard Pryor.. IRS always comes for the big bucks which can make you a sitting duck.

good luck wesley.. i wish you all the best and i hope somehow you can come clear with the IRS. good luck
