Stephen Baldwin busted for failing to pay income tax, owes $350k: Officials
Stephen Baldwin was arrested in Rockland County Thursday for allegedly failing to pay some $350,000 in state taxes over the last three years, officials said.
Baldwin, 46, was charged with failing to file personal tax returns and faces up to four years behind bars if he is convicted. He was released without bail.
"At a time when Rockland County and New York State face severe fiscal shortfalls, we cannot afford to allow wealthy residents to break the law by cheating on their taxes," said Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe. "The defendant's repetitive failure to file returns and pay taxes over a period of several years contributes to the sweeping cutbacks and closures in local government and in our schools."
The brother of Alec Baldwin is due in court Feb. 5. His rep didn't respond to a request for comment.
