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.

Yup    

Jeez... does anyone in hollywood/the entertainment industry pay their taxes? We keep seeing tax liens put against actors/rappers/athletes here daily. Amazing that they make so much money, yet apparently can't be bothered to pay their taxes like us mere mortals. F*ck them!

This guy is such a LOSER. He sucks in football, was never a BIG star. Moderate at best. He made all this money and tries to cheat. These people always have to feel they are getting over on every aspect of their life or they don't feel right. IF out lazy ass gov't. had any balls they would lock up everyone who owes back taxes. You will see how fast they pay. They have said that gov't. workers owe billions in back taxes. If you tell them to pay up or get fired you will see every cent immediately. The system is a f'n joke. Yet the IRS will spend thousands to hunt down a little man for $ 200.00

It's obvious that their are a Lot of idiots in the NFL and NBA, they can throw a ball but their mentality goes no further! Anyone who thinks they can make big bucks and not pay taxes is plain STUPID. Just ask Wesley Snipes!

i cant help it, i feel sorry for him. he is a great football player, and he threw i all away with his attiude. seems alot of athletes get huge amounts of money and just blow it on trying to show off . its like giving a kid money and he comes back with sack of candy.they are so childish. so not in reality, of pay bills and save money, like most adults do. i do wish some team would hire him and not have his talent wasted.
