During tax season, we at the TheStreet would like to remind that even if you're suddenly adding millions of dollars to your paycheck, you need to file a tax return every year. The star of the Blade movies got no such advice when he made more than $38 million since 1999, but only started filing tax returns in 2006. We still don't quite understand this.
Snipes paid taxes on his earnings from Wildcats, Major League, White Men Can't Jump, Jungle Fever, Mo' Better Blues, Passenger 57 and Rising Sun, but suddenly he starts playing a samurai vampire (sorry, daywalker) and he's invulnerable to taxes? Did those eight straight-to-DVD movies he's made since 2004 weaken his powers?
Don't worry, Snipes has plenty of time to ponder this after his final appeal failed last year and he started his three-year prison sentence in December.
