Richard Hatch -- I Need $300,000 STAT!!!

4/5/2011 7:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Survivor" champ Richard Hatch says he DESPERATELY needs someone to loan him $300,000 by April 10 -- so he can pay off his tax debt, avoid prison and then SUE THE BEJESUS out of CBS.

Hatch -- who's currently in the custody of the U.S. Marshals while he waits to serve his sentence for not paying taxes on his $1 million prize -- has fired off an open letter to the public ... saying, "I can prove my innocence if someone will loan me three hundred thousand dollars."

He explains, "I have until April 10, 2011 to pay the Malaysian government the tax they are due for the work I did on Survivor ten years ago, taxes the producer's of Survivor and CBS Television were legally required to pay to the Malaysian Revenue Board."

Hatch says if he makes the payment, his tax problems will be over for good -- and he can focus on filing a lawsuit against CBS, "Survivor" creator Mark Burnett and others related with the show for the "years of torment and financial devastation I have incurred as a result of their improper actions."

Hatch also believes he's being used by the IRS as a "poster child" for what can happen if you don't pay your taxes ... stating, "The government has very effectively exploited my notoriety to their ends and I have been powerless to stop them. "

Hatch is set to begin a 9-month prison sentence -- though he still insists he's an innocent man.

How is he supposed to pay his taxes when they keep putting him in jail, thereby making it impossible for him to work and make enough money to pay the taxes off? He IS an ass but I kind of feel bad for him.

He may be surprised to know that he wasn't powerless to stop them. There is this little known regulation in the IRS code that if you pay your taxes in full and on time they won't throw you in jail. Maybe he needs a good lawyer to inform him of this.

and NO I don't have any $$ to loan to this stupid idiot but it could be fun.............

None of you have a clue about this case I see. Hatch has fully paid his taxes for Survivor. You can look it up, and see for yourself. He is now the victim of an over-zealous judge, who is overstepping his authority. Essentially he is being rail-roaded on a 10 year old charge. And as of this morning, he has already raised 195,000.

Really? Really? Begging for over a quarter of a million dollars? What happened to all of his money? And why didn't he pay taxes in the first place? Maybe he'll be cell mates with Wesley Snipes where they can swap batsh*t crazy ideas.
