Cage & Diamond: Two More Celebrity Tax Offenders

The IRS must be getting more aggressive in their collection of taxes from celebrities. Last week I made two posts about half a dozen new celebrities who had their tax delinquencies made public, and over the weekend two more offenders were identified.

Nicholas Cage

Cage, who ironically starred in a movie where unpaid taxes was a major part of the plotline (National Treasure: Book of Secrets), reportedly owes the IRS more then $6.2 million in unpaid taxes 2007. The IRS even issued a lien on Cage's $3.55 million haunted mansion in New Orleans.

Dustin Diamond

Saved by the Bell star Dustin Diamond has also been accused of neglecting to pay his taxes. According to gossip site TMZ, Diamond owes $21,015.62 in unpaid taxes to the state of Wisconsin. Apparently a lien was filed against his property, and the courts claim that no settlement has been reached.
