15 Celebs in Serious Tax Trouble (You Wouldn't Want to be Them!)

Nicolas Cage

Tax season has come and gone already, so you still have enough time to get yourself prepared for all those payments. However, if you’re feeling pretty bad about missing out on it, don’t worry; there are much worse people than you. To be more specific, we’re talking about celebrities. It’s actually quite amusing to know that these famous people have more than enough money to handle their tax concerns, yet choose not to, opting to wait out making their payments or just evading them altogether. If you’d like to know who’s much worse than you with regard to taxes, read on.

Let's start with Nicolas Cage. Back in 2010, the Oscar winning actor had gotten himself in trouble with the IRS. He apparently owed 14 million dollars. He’s then paid 6.25 million dollars out of his total debt. That’s why he’s continuing to make pretty crappy movies, all for a good paycheck which can pay off his tax problems.

Bar Rafaeli

This supermodel, who was once romantically attached to Leonardo Dicaprio, doesn’t exactly have the cleanest slate. In fact, she was arrested for evading her tax obligations in Israel. She avoided paying her shekels, and also owed 257,000 dollars for stuff like her luxury cars as well as her housing in Tel Aviv’s W Towers. She was released after getting her 193,000 dollar bail settled.
