Stephen Baldwin

Arrested on Tax Charges

Stephen Baldwin was just arrested in New York for repeated failure to file personal income tax returns ... a felony.

According to the Rockland County District Attorney, Baldwin has failed to file returns for the years 2008, 2009, and 2010 -- and owes NY state more than $350,000 in back taxes.

The D.A. said, "At a time when Rockland County and New York State face severe fiscal shortfalls, we cannot afford to allow wealthy residents to break the law by cheating on their taxes."

He added, “The defendant’s repetitive failure to file returns and pay taxes over a period of several years contributes to the sweeping cutbacks and closures in local government and in our schools.”

If convicted, the "Usual Suspects" actor could face up to 4 years in prison. He's due back in court in February.

You may recall, Baldwin's had significant money problems in the past -- he filed for bankruptcy in 2009.

He told me once that the NY Govt. can kiss his big res Azz..... I told him to be careful of his neglect towards paying his taxes. He just laughed and said Something like screw NY and all the people who live there. What a sad situation. Hope his brother helps him out... NOT!

Whoa this is bat-guano insane ... HOW many politicians haven't paid their taxes? HOW many politicians have been thrown in jail recently for tax evasion?

None? Zero?

So some out-of-work actor gets thrown in jail? Why? What's the difference here?

He is my least favorite Baldwin in the history of people with that last name. Also, I just realized he's the originator of duck lips/duck face. I doubly despise this born again ass hat. I hate the type who slut around with coke up their noses only to turn around and point the finger at people who've done far less. You're like the rest of us SB -- your **** stinks!
