Lindsay Lohan's Tax Problems Reveal a Deeper Issue

lindsay lohanI'd never thought I'd say this because it reminds me of being scolded as a child and forbidden from having dessert FOR A WHOLE WEEK, buuuut ... lindsay Lindsay LINDSAY! What were you thinking?! I'm not talking, nor is anyone else, about myself, I'm talking of course about Lindsay Lohan. She needs the chastising of her lifetime right now, and if Dina's too drunk to do it, I'll step up. It's been reported today that LiLo hasn't paid her 2010 federal income tax. Nor has she paid her 2009 federal taxes. Lindsay! Lindsay! Lindsay!

Someone needs to grab this girl by the blonde extensions and wake her up because there are only two things that are certain in life: death and taxes. LiLo can run, but she can't hide.


She owes the government, in total from '09 and '10, around $243,000. And I guarantee you she's going to have to pay every last cent. No one gets a Get Out of Taxes Free card, no matter how famous you are. Just ask Wesley Snipes.

She's got a few months to file this year's report, and um, someone better get on her about that. If she fails to pay up again, uh oh, could be back to jail for her.

The only thing that worries me about this news, besides the fact that there's probably a federally funded education program that could use her 243 Gs right about now, is the fact that Lindsay might think she could get away with not paying her share. And if she thinks she can hide from taxes, does she also think she can hide from death? If she considers one certainty to be a contingency, then it's possible she feels that way about another.

And by the way she's been acting and looking recently, it's almost likely that Lindsay thinks she can escape death just as "successfully" as she's skipped out on taxes. Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that. The Grim Reaper and the IRS don't take no for an answer. And if you provoke them, if you piss them the hell off, they'll be at your doorstep before you can say, "Wait! Let me call my manager!"

What do you think about Lindsay's tax problem?
