Famed action movie star Steven Seagal owes almost $350,000 for back taxes. The actual total, according to the State of California's Franchise Tax Board, is $347,849.67. But what the heck, let's just say it's $350,000.
The situation is not hopeless. Other celebrities have paid their delinquent tax bill by selling artistic projects. As reported by the New York Times, Willie Nelson released a double album in 1992 called "The IRS Tapes: Who'll Buy My Memories?" to help pay his outstanding balance.
Seagal, in turn, may best earn some quick cash by remaking some of his most popular films. Following is a possible list of titles:
Hard to Report A skilled negotiator attempts to free hostages in an H&R Block office minutes before the expiration of the filing deadline.
Under Water A Navy Seal wakes up after 10 years in a coma and begins a desperate search for decade old pawnshop tickets.
Marked for Foreclosure An ex-IRS agent teaches Aikido moves to delinquent homeowners to use during negotiated settlements.
Above the Lien A police officer spends his last day on the job tracking down citizens who falsified the 1040 A short form.
Out for Just-IRS A retired auctioneer must sell his belongings unless he wins a lawsuit against an accountant from whom he received misleading estate planning advice.
Grab some popcorn - you'll be on the "Edge of your Seat."
