Ozzy
and Sharon Osbourne are one giant step closer to TAX FREEDOM -- because TMZ has learned, the couple just paid off nearly 3/4 of a million dollars of a massive tax bill.

According to government documents, obtained by TMZ, the Ozzies just forked over $718,948.25 to cover their unpaid taxes for 2008.

But it's just the tip of the IRS-berg -- as we reported, Ozzy and Sharon allegedly still owe $1,381,245.65 in unpaid taxes for 2007 and 2009.

"America's Got Talent" money hard at work.

I could see a "mistake" for one year, although it's hard to see a "mistake" in this amount. When you're talking 3 years, with huge amounts each year, a pattern emerges and it starts to sound deliberate.

Why aren't they in jail like Wesley Snipes? A tax cheat is a tax cheat is a tax cheat. Why are they being given additional time to pay what they owe? Celebrity justice once again.

says OZZY Osbourne, th@ Prince of Darkness, and the rest of Human-Satan-Mankind also gave nothing to this T.I.N.-Man that I didn;t all-readu have (America) and I don;t need his Federal Reserve Notes but I do need him to confess ME, The [new and only JEW] TaxMan IRS IMF in this DNA of Supernaut (Inter-Denomi-Nationally) Iron Man Looking for Today's Sabra Cadabra.
I have Admiralty-Maritime & Ecclesiastical-Sharia Law Jurisdictions and take pensions of those public servants & private individuals who disagree. Ozzy should seek ME and bring some pony-girls to stay with ME for getting ME sum of the satisfaction'sz' Principle and Interest.
