Wesley Snipes has to pay up big time. After his unsuccessful attempt to settle for back taxes in the amount of $850,000, Snipes was ordered by a judge in tax court to pay $9.5 Million to the IRS.
Snipes reportedly tried to prove to the U.S. Tax Court Judge, Kathleen Kerrigan, and the court that he did not own any assets from a six-figure payout settlement but lost his case. In 2013, the IRS tried to collect Snipes’ unpaid taxes in the amount of $23.5 million between 2001 and 2006. 2013 was the same year that Snipes was released from prison after so doing a three-year sentence.
It is unclear on when Snipes is supposed to pay the IRS the ordered amount.
