Even now, after facing the reality of prison, this guy still blames his accountant and "the judicial system" for failing him. What a narcissistic loser.

Yeah but lets let a congressman Charlie Rangel who WRITES OUR TAX CODES for the US, evade taxes for 20 years and he just gets a tongue lashing.

Total BS.

Alot of you commenting really are ignorant and should understand why he got the sentence he did. Watch the YouTube video "freedom to fascism" and you will see the light idiots! To many penis riders who know nothing and love commenting about stuff they know nothing about. And you wonder why America is going down the train!

Snipes, the only thing that might have been able to save you from jail would have been if you had changed your name to Barney Frank.

It's amusing to read to comments that he's getting what he deserve' and he's not above the law. He seems that the same law doesn't apply to everyone, let's look at Lindsey Lohan.

She's broken the law and violated probation how many times, and does a few days or hours in jail and then goes to Rehab.

TI broke the same laws as Lindsey and he's in jail not Rehab.

Wow, what does Wesley Snipes and TI have in common?

This is obscene. He is there for failure to FILE not failure to pay. He is being used as a way to put fear into your average person to file pay up or beware. Meanwhile the real criminals are on Wall Street, in DC , and state governments, stealing trillions of our tax dollars every single day and/or using them for things that we the people do not want. Taxation without representation is illegal. I usually don't think about the race issue, but in this case I think his race and his fame definitely play a part.

Why aren't all you ******gers stampeding en masse to his defense? Everyone knows taxes are the work of Satan-worshiping commie Muslims, right? If this was a snow white celeb like Pat Boone or somebody, Palin and Beck would be protesting outside the prison right now.
