hmmm, so Lauryn Hill going to jail for not paying her taxes.
Ok, I”m sorry, but man, rich people PAY YOUR DAMN TAXES!!!! Shoot, you got people who poor as hell be struggling to pay $50 damn dollars in taxes. I ain’t got no sympathy for rich folk who know they got taxes to pay, but don’t pay attention or don’t control they own money.
Bet she gonna pay them on time next time!
See this is what’s wrong with some people when they get some money. Oprah gave one bit of advice once about money…”SIGN EVERY DAMN CHECK THAT LEAVES FROM YOUR OFFICE/ACCOUNT”…even if u have to use a darn stamper.
Lauryn Hill, Chris Tucker and the rest of ‘nem, need to stop just letting accountants and personal assistants handle everything.
Oh and if you just have a “principled” objection to paying taxes (I’m talking bout you Wesley Snipes), that’s fine, but guess what, when the taxman cometh, you azz is grass and off IRS prison you go…sorry ta tell ’em.
look, I’m NOT saying the prison term is fair or not fair, all I’m saying it just galls me people like Lauryn Hill and the like who don’t come from money, who don’t know the usual “hiding the income” from the IRS slip and slides that old school rich people do, get caught for not paying taxes, my first thought is come on man, when you were born and raised poor, then yeah when/if you get rich, you prob will in all likely hood blow it, but dang, if you manage to hang on to your money, then you needs to damn well pay attention to who’s keeping your records and where your money is going.
I mean, if you’ve had to pay taxes all your life, then you don’t just forget to check around tax time, especially cause I know my fam, darn near plan big purchases around tax time…lol
Yeah, it’s not fair and it’s hypocritical that someone like Mitt Romney, or Bernie Maddoff can get away with tax stuff, but damn we gotta live in the world as it is, not as it should be. It ain’t fair for us and for right now, it never will be
