Actor Al Pacino is in some hot water with the IRS, but it seems it was just a case of poor management rather Â than Pacino trying to pull one over on the government. Â The IRS says that Pacino underpaid for both 2008 and 2009, and in total he owes nearly $200,000 to them. Â Pacino’s representatives blame his former business manager, Kenneth Starr, who was convicted for Ponzi scheming and is now serving seven years in prison for his crimes.
Pacino now has new management, who are working with the IRS to get the situation handled as soon as possible. Â A representative has stated that obviously Pacino doesn’t have any financial issues preventing him from paying his taxes – he was simply the victim of poor management, and the debt will be settled as soon as possible.
