Jim Carrey

Proves Good Bossery

Officials YANK Art Studio Fine

EXCLUSIVE

0605-jim-carrey-tmz-art-studioJim Carrey has declared VICTORY in his fight with the State of NY -- after the actor proved he's not  the careless insurance-denying art studio boss he was made out to be.

TMZ broke the story ... Carrey had been slapped with a $72,000 fine for failing to provide workers' comp insurance at his art studio for all of 2012.

At the time, a Carrey rep told TMZ it was a clerical error on the state's part ... but now, we've learned Carrey backed up his story with real, actual, legitimate documentation!

In fact .... after Carrey provided the paperwork to NY officials proving his 2012 coverage, the NY Workers' Compensation Board sent Carrey a letter saying the penalty has been RESCINDED.

In conclusion -- Jim Carrey is NOT a bad boss ... he DOES care about his employees ... all is well in the State of NY.

The end.

Shows you what a krap job their doing, that they would fine him first, and ask for proof later. The Revolution is upon us. How long do you think people are going to continue to tolerate negligence, corruption, abuse and thievery by the politicians and civil servants, when they have bestowed themselves with awesome powers over you, your life and your money.

SHAME on TMZ
`
...for not Fact-Checking your initial story & instead blaming Jim Carrey.
`
Before running your initial story, you should have verified his defense, a clerical error, before lambasting him.

I live in the state of NY. No one cares about the state of New York. It is a corrupt over taxed over regulated place where the politics is steal what you can while you can. People save yourselves...dont ever come here.......this place will suck the last dollar out of your pocket..

Thanks Jim I do not know much about your project.Thanks for clearing that hot mess up. To have someone support the arts is great. I am proud that you are not in miami throwing thousands of dollars at naked chicks.Sometimes art projects feel like you are throwing money in to the wind but at least you have something beautiful everyone in the world can have the opportunity to view.

One of the unfunniest unappealing comedians on the planet, always plays the funny idiot and thinks that people are still buying his worn out sh*t...
