Actress Alyssa Milano is broke as a joke and didn’t pay her taxes. And like a true liberal, she says it’s all someone else’s fault.
Milano made the stunning revelations in a $10 million lawsuit she filed in Los Angeles against her former business manager, Kenneth Hellie and his firm Hellie, Hoffer & Co.
Because of Helli’s alleged negligence, Milano says she failed to pay her income taxes for 2013 and 2014; didn’t make mortgage payments on her West Hollywood condo; lost millions on a failed home renovation project, and neglected to pay her employees’ taxes.
Deadbeat Didn’t Pay Employees
In other words, Milano sounds like an equality-opportunity deadbeat. As a result, Alyssa says she and her husband David Bugliari are “millions of dollars in debt and their credit is in ruins,” Variety reported.
Milano alleges that her financial woes began with a ‘home improvement debacle.’ Milano says Hellie’s poor oversight of the remodeling job caused costs to spiral. She ended up spending $5 million, though the home is worth no more than $3 million.
She also says her accountants failed to notify her of Ventura County building code violations, which lingered for more than five years, resulting in a lien and $376,950 in fines.
Milano alleges that her business manager also failed to pay her federal income taxes in 2013 and 2014. Milano says her employees also complained of late payments, and that Hellie failed to pay her employees’ taxes.
It’s shocking that Milano was not aware she didn’t pay her taxes, especially since she’s a 44-year-old mom of two who has been working since she was a child.
Moreover, her husband is an agent at Creative Artists Agency, one of the world’s top talent agencies. Between the two of them, someone should have asked, “Hey honey, did I pay my taxes this year?”
Tax Evader Calls Trump Unethical
Ironically, Milano has loudly demanded that Trump release his income tax returns while ignoring her own unpaid taxes. Perhaps if Milano spent as much time managing her finances as she does slamming President Trump, she wouldn’t be in this mess.
Alyssa Milano — who shot to fame as a child star in the hit TV show “Who’s the Boss” — has recently kept her name in the headlines by trashing Trump, his wife Melania, and his daughter Ivanka.
In March 2017, Milano wrote an impassioned op-ed in Marie Claire magazine, where she urged fans to impeach Trump, whom she called an “egomaniac” with “questionable business ethics.”
Alyssa told fans that impeaching Trump is up to women, so they must continue to protest and obstruct him. “Removing [Trump] will be up to us,” she wrote. “It’s women who are organizing the resistance. Women can change the world.”
Yes, Alyssa, women can change the world. And they can start by paying their damn taxes.
