Soap Star's Charities -- Where's the Money???

7/3/2011 12:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"All My Children" star Jack Scalia raised more than $100,000 for victims of 9/11 and military vets -- but now Scalia reportedly doesn't know where the money went ... and the IRS is hot on his tail.

Scalia promoted two charities, says the NY Post -- one called 9-11-01 Lest We Forget, the other, Operation American Spirit. According to the paper, the 9/11 charity had its tax-exempt status yanked by the IRS because it didn't file a single tax return.

California authorities have issues with the other charity and its operation has been suspended because of "lapses" in paying taxes and fees. 

Scalia -- who participated in a bike ride for one of the charities -- filed for bankruptcy in 2004. He told the Post, "I was riding my bike and being the spokesperson. I don't know that end of it."

What the Hell? In the opening, you imply Jack Scalia is being investigated personally for the charity lapses, but the rest of the story is about the failing charities and how Jack was only a spokesperson. Yellow journalism on this level supposedly died in the 1890's!

Taxes! Didn't somebody file a 501c3 for a non-profit? It doesn't matter now, he's scr*w*d! His only hope is to be able to lead the feds to bigger fish from this fiasco. Too bad he can't pull the money out of his back pocket. He made some money back in the day. Well, maybe he spent all the money he made from his 15 minutes.

I hope Jack is not involved in any hanky panky with the charity money. When he was younger I always thought he was hot and kind o*****ood guy. Not too bad looking as an older guy either.

Sorry Charlie but if anything it sounds more like a set up to get at Jack when he had nothing to do with the money side of the charity. You obviously judge people by what you read.

Bubba.. The charites were in 2008. Jack filing bankruptcy in 04 couldn't have anything to do with this.

Bubbajk.. I agree, this journalism is juvenile. Jack didn't handle the money, he was the spokesperson! Fingers are being pointed at the wrong person and that will come out..it's obvious!
