Dionne Warwick

She Knows the Way

To Hose the Tax Man

What do you get when you file for bankruptcy ... in Dionne Warwick's case, you get a pass on more than $10 MILLION in debts.

A bankruptcy trustee filed legal docs Tuesday ... recommending to the judge that Dionne be excused from paying $10,727.429.91 in debts ... almost all of it in delinquent taxes.

The tax bills are as old as hills ... dating back as far as 1991.  Under the recommendation -- which is almost always rubber stamped by the judge -- Dionne will have a fresh start.

The trustee is even letting Dionne keep all her personal stuff, including:

-- 2 fur coats and 2 sets of diamond earrings, valued at $13K
-- Various gowns and everyday clothing -- $5K
-- Art work and paintings -- $5K
-- Living room furniture, dining set, bedroom sets, 2-year-old lap top -- $1,500
-- Cash in her pocket -- $1K

The judge should make his final decision soon, so say a little prayer for Dionne.

Many years ago I saw Ms Warwick at the Copacabana in N.Y. She was there as a guest it took every ounce of courage I had to approach her for a autograph. I loved her music and bought every record she made. I was so humiliated and hurt, I just wanted to crawl under a table. Never bought or listened to another song.

It's my understanding that tax liabilities are NOT canceled by a bankruptcy. And I don't think judges have any discretion on that matter.

NO ONE is allowed to bankrupt on tax bills. If they let her, no one will ever pay taxes. Besides, she earned enough money to OWE 10 mil so pay up !!!
