Tucker’s Tax Troubles!

28 07 2010

Another month, another actor in trouble with the IRS. Following in the infamous footsteps of both Nicolas Cage and Wesley Snipex, “Rush Hour” star, Chris Tucker owes the agency $11 million in back taxes.

The Internal Revenue Service filed documents with the L.A. County Recorder’s Office yesterday, which show Tucker owes $11,571,909.26 in federal taxes for the years 2001, 2002 and 2004 through 2006.

Here’s how it all breaks down:

2001 — $4,007,794.34
2002 — $5,060,074.23
2004 — $55,544.84
2005 — $660,414.94
2006 — $1,788,080.91

But this isn’t Tucker’s first issue with taxes — as we previously reported, the State of California filed a lien against Tucker for allegedly not paying $3,594,409 in state taxes over the same time span.

FYI — Back in 2001, Tucker reportedly took in a $20 million payday for “Rush Hour 2” and scored $25 million for “Rush Hour 3” … which hit theaters in 2007.

While there has been no word from Chris’ people on the tax situation, it appears that the actor will probably be making more than “Rush Hour” films!
