Stephen Baldwin Arrested On Tax Evasion Charges

Stephen Baldwin owes $350K in unpaid taxes to the State Of New York. Yesterday, the actor was arrested and charged with failing to pay three years of state income taxes. If he is convicted, Stephen faces four years in prison. Unlike in California where four years means about 45 minutes, this would be a very long sentence if nothing is agreed to before hand. Baldwin was not even bothering to file returns. He is next due in court in February. On the bright side, he does take a good mug shot. Need some money? Celebrity Mole. That is all I am saying.

rejectedcarebear said...

Lol......priceless.

I wonder why Wesley Snipes didn't teach anyone a lesson!

Amber said...

Because everyone but the IRS forgot Wesley Snipes existed ;(

LottaColada said...

LOL he's still in prison.

I only hope to photograph as well when I am arrested for being rich & unwilling to pay my taxes, you know, because right now I'm a normal person that pays my taxes ;) jk Whats with the duck face? Alec does the same thing. They pert their mouth seductively. Face Face Face. ;)

nancer said...

i think he is so creepy.

Amber said...

@Lotta - haha I know. I was just being a smartass.

@Second - One thing about those Baldwins, they've all got ridiculously seductive eyes.

Always, always take a good mug shot!! And bwahahahaha.

Jason said...

When he found Jesus it sounds like he missed the part about rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar's.

dia papaya said...

I hear ya @SecondCityKid!

And, I can't say this enough... Please bring back The Mole! I will take (washed up has been) Celebrity Mole if that's all I can get - even with pretty eyed duck lips from ip top. I believe Anderson is free for a while - once his eyes heal. Sorry that sounded so rude of me. I do want to see a healthy Anderson... But as host of The Mole!

Agent**It said...

Jason, my first out loud laugh of the morning !

bflogurl said...

Celebrity Mole is my favorite (heck, I love the show with regular Joes too!), Baldwin and Corbin Bernsen were freaking awesome together!!

Lola said...

He wasn't arrested for failing to pay, he was arrested for failing to FILE. Big difference.

This is why Lindsey won't go to jail over taxes. She's in trouble for failing to PAY. You don't go to jail for failing to pay (unless your filing was intentionally deceptive).

Barton Fink said...

I always feel like he's saying "prune" as he senses a photo being taken.

Amber said...

What the heck is Celebrity Mole?

rhinovodka said...

I used to like him when he was younger, esp. when he was on a show called the "Young Riders".

Renoblondee said...

@Jason Hahahaha! Love it!

Kathleen said...

Isn't he the Christian fundamentalist? Ironic. "Pay into Caesar was is due to Caesar" - i.e. pay your taxes, deadbeat!

SusanB said...

Didn't even bother to file? *shivers* - I'll live under a bridge before I'll not pay my taxes. Having the IRS after you for ANY reason is just not worth it.

Turkish Taffy said...

Is Lindsay Lohan a resident of New York State? *crosses fingers* Please, please, please...

He was just whining in the media about how being a Christian cost him his career. I personally think it had much more to do with his jamming his Christianity down everybody's throat that cost him. Dude lacks insight. Also brains. Shouldn't being a "good Christian" mean doing the right thing, including your taxes?

MadLyb said...

Couldn't happen to a nicer homophobic, self-proclaimed Jesusophile. But then again, it didn't "happen" to him. He brought it on himself. Jesus sort of told people to pay their taxes, but I guess he skipped that part and went straight to Deuteronomy. Yeah, I'm being judgey, but I have no problem judging hypocrites.

dia papaya said...

RhinoVodka! I loved, loved that show!!! It was so cheesy but good :)

Amber- it's The Mole but with used up celebrities. It's like Amazing Race but more chill and one of the celebrities is trying to sabotage everyone. If you figure out who the mole is you win!

CamColty said...

Take note teenage girls on twitter! The duck face at its finest

AKM said...

I'm forgetting where it was or who asked, but I loved it when he could not even name the Ten Commandments when pressed. I think he was able to mumble something about three of them.

Lori said...

he always goes to sexy face, and it always gets me!

then I remember things he says...

reminds me of him and laura flynn boyle in threesome (josh charles...siiiiigh)

"i dont like you staurt..."
"that's ok."

he was super hot in that movie.

888 said...

MadLyb- So it doesn't make you a hypocrite to whine about how judging people is wrong and bad, then turn around and judge someone because you dislike/disagree with their beliefs?

And if you think being a Christian won't cost you your career in Jewish run Hollywood, you're flat out retarded. I'm not a fan of any of the Baldwins or fundies in general but let's be real here. For a bunch of educated elitists, you people have no clue.

Heh. In my nightmare of divorce/custody, I found out my MIL had illegally forged my name on tax filings in 2007 (she used to "help" us w/ taxes; I'm not so great with math). All was fine on my part, but my ex neglected to claim about $30,000 worth of income. When I left (my exodus from Egypt) I started getting bills at my parents' address trying to make me pay because that year it was filed jointly. Apparently they had beeen sending mail for a long time at my previous address that my ex MIL was intercepting. I filef for innocent spouses relief, which was granted, then "he" appealed it (yea, ex MIL is.... unique. My ex has schizophrenia that his family refuses to acknowledge, they just hide him. Haven't seen him since 2010 but the custody has been going on for 4 years). After another 6 months i was finally granted complete relief.

Then earlier this year I got a letter from my state (PA) that they were garnishing my wages to pay back taxes for my ex from 2006 tax year. I knew nothing about this. Again my ex MIL intercepted any mail from my old address. There was also a lien put on both our names in my county I live in. I managed to get out of that because I had proof I paid all taxes and turned in my stuff. He apparently never filed, so they were able to separate the two.agh. i was able to get the lien removed but it damaged my credit even though it was dismissed.

Always use a tax professional or CPA, kids!

chopchop said...

Count me in as another superfan of The Mole. That's where I met my gay boyfriend Anderson Cooper. I loved that show.

Amber said...

@dia - oh okay. I've actually never seen any of those shows, and am not sure what the premise is. But no need to explain - I'll look it up. :)

Cornbread said...

All I came here to say was how much I HATE HIS FACE, but you all beat me to it, and with MUCH better jokes! :)

Also, 888, could you choose something besides the "R" word when bashing people? Some of us find that offensive. Thanks.

Mango said...

I'm kinda shocked that he made that much money to owe that much in taxes.

Barton Fink said...

Good point, Mango. Where is this money coming from?

cinephreak said...

lol that face!

brittiany said...

Me too! I loved "Young Riders "

Sherry said...

Oh Stephen! Work it girl..Lola, I am so distressed to hear that Liho actually filed. I was so hoping she had forgotten..There goes that dream.

T. E. Cuz said...

taxation is theft

Squeezebox said...

T.E. Cruz - taxation is the rent you pay for living in this country and making use of public services. If you don't like, get the hell out and move to your libertarian paradise of Somalia.

I'm sick to death of you anti-gov fuckwits.

misspeg86 said...

lol a Baldwin doing duck face in a mug shot...what's next?

csproat said...

With an expression like that on his face, I think he owes all of us 350k
