Full House Star Dave Coulier Owes Back Taxes

According to there is a new addition to the list of 2009’s biggest celebrity tax evaders. Earlier in the week it was discovered that 90’s sitcom star Dave Coulier is in serious debt to the IRS. His debts reportedly total over $50,000 and the both the IRS and his home state of California have both issued liens against Coulier to collect the unpaid tax debts.

The state of California filed an $11,793 lien against him on May 4 in the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds office. The IRS filed a $37,063 lien against him on March 17, 2008, in Los Angeles County.

Checking up on Dave Coulier's Official website, I found no mention of his little tiff with the taxing authorities. He does however, indicate that he'll be visiting close to my home in Wisconsin next month. I also checked Dave's Twitter feed to see if he tweeted about the situation. He hasn't yet mentioned his back taxes on Twitter, but he does indicate that becoming a senator may be one way to pick your nose in peace - or not.

This much I can tell you for certain; It's better to pay our taxes when they are due, than it is to try retrospectively prying the IRS off our backs. I always suggest leaving tax form preparation to a professional tax accountant, because being able to talk in comical voices won't make a tax audit one bit funnier.
