You just had to know that I loved writing that headline. For those of you who are outside the country and not familiar with the IRS. It is the tax collection and enforcement agency of the US Government. Another thing about them is that they are very nice, especially considering the fact they are making Nicolas Cage's life miserable and I would never say anything bad about an agency that has the ability to make my life painful. Ever been strip searched by an IRS agent. Like everything they do, they are very thorough. Very thorough if you know what I mean.
According to Forbes, Cage tried to write off $3.3M in taxes for things such as gifts, limos, meals, travel and his Gulfstream jet. Hmmm. Didn't know he had a jet did you? Cage disputes the items and his manager says they are a necessary part of doing business in Hollywood and that much of it was for Cage's personal security. Umm. Excuse me. Nicolas Cage needs bodyguards? From what? I don't think there are many people out there who even want to meet Nicolas Cage, let alone kidnap him, his young kid, or his wife. I would also like to know how meals and gifts contribute to his personal safety.
I think what he is really afraid of is Kathleen Turner stalking him and finally pulling that damn piece off his head so we can just get on with his baldness and just stop pretending.
