Ain’t No Sunshine – DMX Arrested for Cheating IRS

Written by on 15 July 2017

Trouble and DMX go hand-in-hand, so him getting arrested is really no big surprise, but his latest arrested is a lot less gangsta compared to his previous dozens of arrests. This time, the IRS wants one Mr. Earl Simmons for owing more than $1.7 million in taxes. The hip-hop legend was arrested on Thursday by the feds for tax fraud after engaging in an elaborate scheme for several years. From 2002 to 2005, he didn’t pay the aforementioned taxes by not using personal bank accounts and instead opening accounts in other people’s names and living a cash-fueled lifestyle. No credit, no problems, huh? Not in this case, and another problem for X is the fact that that he didn’t file personal income taxes between 2010 and 2015, even though he earned around $2.3 million. So far, he’s pled not guilty, but as we’ve seen through the years, the IRS don’t play. Charged with 14 counts, he faces a whopping 44 years. But, X doesn’t seem too worried when he was quoted as saying, “It’s allowed me to not be scared of the situation and face it head-on, you know what I’m saying? My life is in God’s hands.”
