Bubba Sparxxx

My Tax Problems Are WAY

Bigger than You Thought

Bubba Sparxxx doesn't just owe $30,000 in back taxes to the State of Georgia, he owes hundreds of thousands to the Federal Government -- but the rapper tells TMZ, he's finally changing his deadbeat taxpayer ways.

TMZ broke the story -- the State of Georgia is now garnishing Bubba's wages to cover his $29,266 debt to the state ... but Bubba tells us, that's just the tip of the iceberg ... his debt to the IRS is roughly ten times that amount.

As for why he let it get so bad -- Bubba tells us, "I was having a good time and just wasn't attentive to a lot of issues. My main issue was Mr. Tax Man, which I neglected because of doing things I had no business doing."

Bubba claims he's now turning his life around -- saying, "This past year I have now changed all of that. I have stopped partying and hanging out ... I got a tax lawyer and a business accountant to get my tax situation handled."

Bubba adds, "I plan on paying my debt with my new album." Good luck.

He had 2 hit singles 10 years ago. Chances are, he's not going to have another hit. Throw him in jail. We all have to pay taxes and there's no excuse. Just because he's partying it up, doesn't mean he gets the right to neglect his obligations. Grow up, Bubba. Sounds like he has a Superiority Complex, not to mention Peter Pan Syndrome. Probably still sucks his thumb.

Hmmm....................this wannabe must be selling those albums for a great deal of money. He seems to be quite proud of his situation.

Is this ignorant goober actually famous for anything other than having a moronic name?
C'mon, admit it TMZ this story is a plant by his publicist to try to jump start a dead career. That's assuming of course that his career wasn't stillborn.
Harvey, the few shekels you made off of this clown, was it really worth it?

You guys don't understand how this works: TMZ isn't reporting, they are running ads which are paid for by the "celebrity". Now sure, real events do happen, like someone dying, those are likely not paid ads, everything else usually is. It's how it works kids.

I have little sympathy for rappers with tax problems. However he does gain a bit of respect with me for owning up to the fact that it is his fault he's in this mess. Usually these guys will blame someone else or deny there is a problem altogether.
