Nic Cage

Acting His Way

Out of Tax Debt!

11/19/2012 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicolas Cage
continues to chip away at his massive tax debt ... one sequel / three-quel at a time ... 'cause the actor paid off another tax lien, to the tune of $600k!!!

TMZ broke the story ... Cage was hit with a federal tax lien back in 2011 ... for $624,934.64. Seems he forgot to pay taxes on some really expenses gifts he gave out between 2004-2009.

According to the IRS all that's behind him now ... Cage is now paid in full, making him a super-duper-tax-lien-payer-offer ... considering last April he paid off another lien for $6 million. But Nick isn't out of the woods ... he still owes roughly $6 mil to Uncle Sam, but every little bit helps.

Apparently those new (old) roles  ... i.e. "Kick-Ass 2", "Ghost Rider 2", "National Treasure 3" and now "Ghost Rider 3" are really paying off.

We're kidding ... "Ghost Rider 3" isn't real. Yet.

Maybe Cage did find bury treasures.

I've got a new found respect for that man. He done wrong, unknowingly probably, but he is working hard which is what any American should do to make the wrong, right! More than I can say about "Raise the debt limit to infinity" Timothy Geitner.

I think this tax stuff was, in part, a set up to keep him in line. Regardless, someone in Hollywood has him on a chain.

To all the people who are saying nick can't act I guess he got an Oscar for nothing I think he's just made bad films because of his money problems

Like all the others that make it in hollywood and sit in their backyard sipping wine and toasting to how rich they are and saying "I wonder how the poor are doing tonight?" At which they do! The ones that fixate on themselves are the ones that go belly-up everytime. Nicholas Cage, Paris Hilton, Scarlett Johansson,Kate Hudson and so on. In their mind it's all about me-me-me and what else will people do to look at me and spend online payday loans on me so I can live a easy and non-working life. Great going people supporting these low lifes that think of themselves and what can they get by doing the least amount of anything.

I have always been a fan of Nic and people think super stars are unhuman like but he really is a laid back kinda guy and very nice as well, I live in Las Vegas and work at a petsmart and he comes in a few times a month to shop and always acts like the rest of us and doesnt come in dressed like a star at all! jogging pants and sneakers and a T-shirt along with his young son. I was working today and he came in to by some dogfood and fish aquipment like any other normal person does and is always kind and quiet. we in the store never make a big deal about him coming in and the same goes for shoppers, we just give him space and let him be normal.
