Jodie Sweetin Has Tax Issues, But Who Else?By: Daryl Nelson - January 6, 2014
Now that “Full House” star Jodie Sweetin has paid off her debt to Uncle Sam, it makes one wonder what other celebs have been in trouble with the IRS. Whether it’s famous actors or singers, no one is immune to the wrath of the U.S. government whenever it can prove that it was short changed. So here’s a list of four entertainers who were in hot water in recent years, and while some have swam to safer grounds, others are still paddling for the shore.
Dionne Warwick– At age 72, probably the last thing you want to be doing is going toe-to-toe with the IRS. I mean, that’s something you don’t want to do at any age, but veteran singer Dionne Warwick owed $10.7 million in 2013 and filed for bankruptcy as a result. And as of today, she’s still trying to pay everything off.
Stephen Baldwin– Alec Baldwin’s baby bro had to fork over $350,000 in back taxes last year and setup an installment agreement to pay it all off. As of October 2013, the 47-year old paid $100,000, according to the New York Post, but he isn’t in the clear yet. Some probably wonder why Alec wasn’t able to cut him a check for the rest.
