It’s hard to feel bad for mega-rich celebrities trying to make a quick buck by cheating the government out of taxes. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s an honest mistake — especially when you’re dealing with millions coming from different businesses. While some celebs like R. Kelly blatantly abuse the system, some are too whacked out on drugs to even know what’s happening.
These celebrities all tried to evade their taxes and got caught — but one ended up serving time for tax evasion she didn’t commit.
Charlie Sheen Tried To Help Get Lindsay Lohan Out Of Tax Debt, But Failed
Lindsay Lohan had some difficult times in her life. With drug addiction, erratic behavior and problems finding work, the star found herself in some legal trouble with the IRS in 2012. Charlie Sheen attempted to dig his friend out of tax debt by paying her $100,000 – but it only covered what she owed for 2009. She still owed taxes for 2010 and 2011. Lohan’s tax problems were so severe that the IRS literally seized all of her bank accounts. Lohan owed a total of $233,904 after Charlie Sheen’s donation, but that’s nothing compared to some of her tax-evading celebrity peers.
