Occupy Willie Nelson: What Does UK Uncut Make Of Singer’s Tax Song?
We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for
We stand with humanity
against the insanity…
The whole tax set up is a little unfair
But some of us don’t mind paying our share.
What else do we know about Willie Nelson? Welll:
Nelson’s tax trouble started in 1984, when the IRS began looking into his returns stretching back to 1972. After years of investigation, the agency declared that Nelson had underpaid taxes for six years, primarily because of invalid deductions he had taken after investing in tax shelters the IRS subsequently nixed. Nelson protested, but last June a tax court ruled in favor of the government, and the musician grudgingly agreed to pay $6 million in back taxes, plus more than $10 million in penalties and interest.
