MC Hammer to Uncle Sam

I Don't Owe You Anything!

12/24/2011 9:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1224_MC-Hammer_getty_ex2
Not too many people fight back when the U.S. Government comes after them for money -- but MC Hammer is not most people ... so he's standing up to The Man.

As TMZ first reported, the government filed a lawsuit against Hammer and his wife to get the $779,585 it claimed he owed in back taxes. 

But Hammer isn't about to just write a check ... he filed a response in federal court this week claims he settled that debt already. In fact, he's asking the court to grant him a judgement to recoup his legal fees.

Please Hammer, don't hurt 'em.

This is how he bankrupt himself in the first place... not knowing how to manage his money. Dumb ass doesn't know before IRS files a lawsuit they double check in fact, triple check their work to ensure they do not lose.

What is with all of these millionaire celebrities not paying their taxes? Is it a Hollywood trend? Selfish.

one can always dispute the IRS ... just gotta have your ducks in a row when one does ... besides most times they are fighting for far more than one usually actually owes

en Todo Momento!!    

then don't be all surprised when yo neighborhoods are up for sale, because none of you folk pay any damn taxes. taxes are not just uncle sam trying to get a big piece of your pie, taxes mean money that goes back into local communities who can then use them for development and maintenance. it's also known as 'social responsibility'. why else do you think a whole bunch of black folk neighborhoods are so damn ghetto? because 1.a bootleg cd/dvd "business" don't pay for taxes, and 1.2 neither do custom made shoes, t-shirts or pant designs, and 2.all the richer people practice tax evasion like it's a hobby.
