Actor Wesley Snipes is a victim of "unscrupulous tax advice" and is being selectively targeted for prosecution on federal tax evasion charges because he is black, his attorneys argue in a motion to dismiss the indictment.
Oh, really? I'm going to go out on a limb and say that his tax evasion is at the root of these tax charges. Just look at the details further in the article.
According to the indictment, his taxes were prepared by accountants with a history of filing false returns to reap payments for their clients. The firm American Rights Litigators would receive 20 percent of refunds from clients, according to the indictment.
Those who live in the world of fantasy, where people are told they're better because they look good and can convincingly portray different roles, might just believe that they're special enough to make use of superior tax breaks that ordinary people don't get.
Those of us who live in the real world recognize a potential scam when we see it. The key is this company does not receive a flat fee for services rendered, indicating a strong motive to be overly aggressive. At the very least, if I had tons of money and was given an offer like this, I'd get a second opinion. Since I live in reality, I know that it's ultimately me that will pay the price if these accountants passed from accountancy's grey areas to breaking the law.
So... Is American Rights Litigators a subsidiary of Bendini, Lambert & Locke?
