It appears that Terrell Owens may not have paid appropriate taxes while playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills. As first reported by TMZ, a federal tax lien was filed against the out of work wide receiver on February 8th, claiming T.O. still owes major mucho dinero for the tax years years 2005 ($294,661.71), 2007 ($46,504.00), and 2009 ($97,747.81). All totaled, Owens is believed to owe $438,913.52 to Uncle Sam. (See Tax Lien)
If you’ll recall, exactly a week later, T.O. had to be escorted away from a woman’s home at 4:30am by the LAPD after banging on her door for roughly three hours and refusing to leave. No word on whether these two issues were connected. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out however, that the reason T.O. was there was that he believed the woman did a Benedict Arnold on him and turned him in.
For the life of me I can’t understand why the Jets haven’t signed the guy. The Jets need an accomplished misfit-bad-boy receiver, and T.O. needs a job. It’s a perfect fit!
Some things just hurt the brain too much when trying to figure out. Like this one – Alien laser pointer leaves burn mark on Earth! I say it’s best to not have an inquest and leave this one alone…
