Pete Rose -- The Million Dollar Tax Payoff

4/10/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's that time of year -- when everyone is getting their taxes in order -- and baseball legend Pete Rose is no different. But in his case, he just settled up a tax bill with Uncle Sam for almost $1,000,000.

According to documents filed last month with the Recorder's Office in Los Angeles, Rose had accumulated $973,693.28 in back taxes. But get this -- the liens are only on filings from 1997-2002.

Rose pled guilty back in 1990 on two charges of filing false income tax returns. He served a few months in the medium security Prison Camp at the United States Penitentiary in Marion, IL and was fined $50,000.

CHARLIE HUSTLE ! ! ! Even tho he gambled on baseball while playing/managing baseball, he's still better than Bonds, Canseco, McGwuire, Ramirez, A-Rod, Clemens and Sosa. & all the other juiced up idots in baseball.

Pete "Charlie Hustle" Rose still deserves his place in the hall of fame.

Pete Rose has been "persona non grata" to me since he was found out to be betting on baseball (and also left his wife and kids in the dust). His baseball career is over. He's a has-been, a loser, dog s h i t on my shoe! Who cares about him? I don't care if he ends up in jail doing more time for his 2003-to-current taxes. And, I hope Rose never gets in the Baseball Hall of Fame - even posthumously!
