Nicholas Cage taken to court over massive tax bill
London (PTI): Hollywood star Nicolas Cage has been dragged to court by US tax officials who have demanded that the actor pay up a massive USD 6.2 million of overdue taxes.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials have filed a case in a court in Louisiana accusing him of failing to keep up with his taxes in 2007.
The actor, who won an Academy award for his leading role in 'Leaving Las Vegas', is trying to sell his home in Louisiana to recoup the cash, Contactmusic reported.
This is not the first time that the 'Ghost Rider' star has messed up with his taxes. He had to pay interest and penalties back in September 2008, following allegations of improperly deducted personal expenses.
