Pete Rose made Time Magazine's list of “Top 10 Tax Dodgers” before his latest problems with the IRS were announced. In 1990, Pete Rose spent five months in jail after pleading guilty to federal tax evasion charges. In 2004, he faced an IRS tax lien for unpaid taxes that reportedly neared $1 million. Those previous tax problems were allegedly from unpaid taxes related to the failure to report income from autograph sales, memorabilia sales, and gambling wins from horse races during the 1997-2002 period. In 2012, Mr. Rose faced a tax bill of approximately $120,000 for unpaid taxes from tax years 2009 and 2010.
Now, Mr. Rose finds himself in trouble with the tax authorities again. This time, the State of California alleges that Mr. Rose owes the state more than $15,000 for unpaid taxes in 2010 and 2011. A lien has been issued on his property in the amount of $15,520.86. It has been reported that Pete Rose is aware of the California lien on his property and plans to pay the tax bill in full.
