It may well be that he is capable of doing simple tax returns, or at least understanding how to use a phone and call an accountant ... but that would presuppose that he actually wanted to pay his taxes and felt like it was something he should do. If Nick doesn't want to do something, I seriously doubt 'common sense' and 'repercussions' weigh heavily in any thought Nick might give to the situation.
Well i can see why he might not be smart enough to use turbo tax himself but he sure as hell can go drive over to H&r block and get it done. If he is simply unwilling to pay taxes then he deserves to go to jail. Why does someone deserve pity when they make a SHIT load more money then most people but are unwilling to pay their taxes??? They dont. If that is the case for Nick then i hope he gets arrested tomorrow morning.

And it isnt just this tax thing.

He bitches about how he does not have enough money to buy a house and that no one wants to live where he lives. The guy makes ALOT of money and could have nearly everything he wanted. And he does not need professional advice or someone taking care of him or a better education for that to happen. All he needs is some common sense and drive. If he does not care enough then that is his own problem and no one elses. He made his own bed now he needs to start lying in it.

Owns - It's not about the rules. It's about him growing up poor. You grow up poor and in that kind of neighborhood you don't file taxes because you're patriotic. You file it because you want a new tv.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Well whatever the reason is I find it nearly gobsmacking but not really that people always seem to be shocked that nicj will say what he says or does what he does, you know what will shock me? if he murders someone or rapes someone. That would be shocking news to me

He is an independent contractor whose pay in most cases is not taxed so he's gotta set some aside to pay when tax season rolls around; a lot of people cannot manage banking a third or more of their pay on their own and leaving it untouched. Wouldn't be surprised if Nick is this way, and I think this is related to a lot of rich people's tax problems. Nick needs a damn accountant.

That said, I don't think he's going to be doing any time. The IRS is not stupid- they don't want to put people in jail, where they can't earn money, and in fact cost money to charge, try, and incarcerate. Their goal is to get that money and reserve prosecution for the few that need to be made examples of, like active evaders who are not just ignoring filing (lots of people don't file regularly), but lying on their returns, ignoring demands to make payment, etc. He'll be racking up interest the whole time, but from his first contact he'll get a lot of chances to set up reasonable payment plans (which once again, he just needs a goddamn accountant to make sure actually get followed thru on).

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Oh, I totally agree. If he decided not to do his taxes because he felt he was 'above' that sort of thing, or some other stupid selfish excuse, then no pity from me either.

That said, some people are pretty uneducated and let the prospect of filling out their tax forms intimidate them ... hell, I'm not intimidated at all by taxes, I always get money back, and I still always end up putting off doing them for a coupe of weeks.

But, assuming he wasn't BSing, then I'd put money on the excuse being "the government is a bitch and hits like a girl, and they're not getting any of my money"

Owns - I'm not shocked by Nick doing it. I was just pointing out that it's not his upbringing that influences the decision. He's just an idiot if it's true.

Hire an accountant and a lawyer Nick. Anyone defending Nick is just doing it to go against the popular opinion. The guy is a complete moron. Do us a favor and stay retired, maybe spend some time in jail and tell all of us how hard done by you are because of your tax evasion.
