1. Wesley Snipes

Wesley Snipes is famous as Blade, but the IRS recognizes him as a tax defaulter. The star was found guilty of three misdemeanors, including failure to file his federal income tax returns from 1999 to 2001 and owing Uncle Sam $17 million in penalties, interest, and back taxes. Snipes used several means to conceal his lofty income. He even attempted to pay off a part of his owed amount during his prosecution, in order to shun the slammer. However, he failed and in 2008, he was given a three year prison sentence. He started serving his sentence in 2010 and was released in 2013.
