No tax break for Snipes

Prosecutors say there is no deal in place

Prosecutors in the Wesley Snipes tax fraud case say there is no deal with the fugitive actor, who is currently filming in Namibia.

Following a report that quoted industry sources as saying Snipes is working on a payment plan (Daily Variety, Nov. 2), assistant U.S. attorney Robert O’Neill told the Tampa Tribune there is no deal.

How far away a settlement is now is anybody’s guess. Steve Cole, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, was quoted as saying authorities are “making progress toward getting him to the United States.”

Last month, the “Blade” star was indicted in Florida on eight charges of fraud, accused of failing to file tax returns for six years and of seeking $12 million in fraudulent refunds.
