O.J. Simpson taxes

Former football player O.J. Simpson, best known for being charged with and acquitted at trial for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, owes the IRS $179,453.07 in back taxes.

The news, first reported by celebrity news website TMZ, comes less than a year after the bank foreclosed on Simpson’s Florida home. Simpson’s tax bill includes unpaid taxes from 2007 through 2010.

But Simpson’s ability to pay back Uncle Sam is highly questionable. In addition to the millions he owes to the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Goldman following a civil judgment, Simpson is in a Nevada prison for kidnapping and armed robbery following an incident in which he stole sports memorabilia at gunpoint from inside a room at the Palace Station hotel in Las Vegas.
