Pete Rose

Tax Lien Hall of Famer

EXCLUSIVE

The legendary Pete Rose has come out of tax lien retirement
The legendary Pete Rose has come out of tax lien retirement -- but this time he's on the hook for considerably less than he was before. 

As TMZ first reported, Rose paid off his debt to Uncle Sam last April by writing a check for $973,693.28 ... to settle up for a lien that only covered the years 1997-2002. 

Now it seems Pete has regained his form -- according to documents filed in Los Angeles County Recorder's Office, Rose owes $120,643.41 in federal back taxes for the years 2009 and 2010. 

It's just like riding a bike.

I don't regularly follow this D-bag since he's been out of baseball. So, I'm wondering what he does for a living to make enough money to pay more in taxes than many people gross in a year?

Pete Rose is a waste of carbon. He's human garbage. Pete Rose cares about one thing: Pete Rose.
The day he enters the hall is the day baseball is emptied of its meaning and its legacy!!!!!
