While many of us in the U.S. are ramping up to tax time, soccer legend Diego Maradona is dealing with some tax issues of his own. Apparently La mano de Dios is having his records reviewed by Argentine tax authorities, who are requesting records from all of the banks with which he has accounts.
This isn’t the first time Maradona has been in trouble with tax authorities:
In 2006, Italian police stripped the star of two Rolex watches during a visit to Naples, in line with a judicial order requiring payment of a reported 31 million Euros (40 million dollars) worth of back taxes in Italy.
Juan Gabriel, Paquita la del Barrio, Paulina Rubio, and now Maradona. What is it with celebrities not paying their taxes? These people are in the better position to pay their taxes than the rest of us, but they still don’t. Why?
