Forest Whitaker Having Serious Tax Problems

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Syracuse UniversityScholarship in Action 

Hollywood superstar Forest Whitaker was recently hit with a large tax bill after failing to pay $185,000 he owed to the IRS. The tax collectors in California have cited Whitaker and filed a lien for the balance. Both he and his wife Keisha are named in the complaint, which was filed in the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds.
It was reported in 2009 that Whitaker owed $1.29 million in state and federal taxes. Whitaker is not the only Hollywood megastar to have tax problems. Actor Wesley Snipes is in prison until 2013 after being charged with failing to file tax returns for three years.
Chris Tucker was hit with some very serious tax problems himself, as the LA County Records Office showed that Tucker owed over $11 million in taxes up through 2006. Actor Nicolas Cage was also found to owe millions to the IRS.

  1. If you knew what kind of government we are subjects of or subjected to. It would not be a far cry from understanding how the Germans felt when they could do nothing under Hitler’s rule, Or any country under the power of a brutal dictator that demands your involvement through tax or some financial form to do their worst to you and to others.

    It would be great if the people were united enough to shut the whole process down and stop the murderous Elite from their “Manifest Destiny”.
    It is no wonder people don’t want to contribute to a country of tyrants who are ravishing and murdering people of other countries at our expense. But to make matters worse they are preying on us just as well!

    Only the bravest among us shut down and say “Hell No”! This may not be the case with Forest Whitaker but It should be.
