IRS to Terrell Owens

Go Looooooong ...

& Catch a $430k Tax Bill!

Uncle Sam just gave Terrell Owens 430,000 MORE reasons to find an NFL team STAT -- in the form of a GIANT TAX BILL.

A federal tax lien was filed against the fired wide receiver in February -- claiming T.O. still owes major income tax dollars for the years 2005 ($294,661.71), 2007 ($46,504.00), and 2009 ($97,747.81). All totaled -- he's allegedly in the hole $438,913.52.

As for why the bill's so high -- in those years T.O. was still making big bucks in the NFL playing for the Philadelphia Eagles (under a $49 MIL contract!!!), Dallas Cowboys, and Buffalo Bills.

Fast forward to now ... and he's just got too much time on his hands.

Calls to T.O. were not returned.

I am so sick of these celebrities and sports "stars" not paying their taxes. Why is it that the average Joe making a lot less than them manages to pay what they owe. It is a disgrace. They should be ashamed of themselves. Stop spending money on luxuries and own up to your responsibilities.

Some of you need to watch the ESPN 30 for 30 titled "Broke". It was sad. What I didn't realize was that these guys have to pay taxes to all the states in which they play every season. That just never dawned on me. So I can see how this kind of stuff can happen. It doesn't excuse stupidity but I get it. You really need a great money person in your corner when you're making that kind of money.
