Wesley Snipes on IRS plane crash: ‘What’s new?’
Actor Wesley Snipes, who has tax problems of his own, had a blunt reaction to news about a man who crashed his plane into a Northwest Austin office building that houses IRS offices.
In an interview Friday with The Associated Press, Snipes said, “What’s new?”
Authorities say Andrew Joseph Stack III, who was furious with the Internal Revenue Service, crashed his plane into the building Thursday, killing two and injuring two.
Snipes said tax problems have been an issue in the U.S. from the very beginning: “I think it was an issue even for the early colonists and the British, so what’s new”
Snipes, 47, was convicted in 2008 of not paying taxes for three years. He was sentenced to three years in prison and is appealing.
