Chris Tucker Is Making a Run at Nicolas Cage-Level Tax Trouble

Maybe! CT owes the Treasury $11.5 million for back taxes, according to reports. This covers the 2001-2002, 2004-2006 tax years.

This sum nips on the heels of the $14 million that Nic Cage paid the Feds last year (and the $3.8 million he owes California for this year). In addition to the sum due to Shulman & Co., Tucker owed California $3.5 million last year, so, clearly, we’ve got ourselves a race here.

The difference is that NC has been working, which gives him a glimmer of hope of being in full compliance.


Tucker hasn’t been in a film since Rush Hour 3 in 2007 which, as some have pointed out, may be extremely good news for fans of that particular franchise.
