Martin Scorsese's Tussle with IRS


In what might as well be a page from one of his award-winning scripts, movie director Martin Scorsese is involved in a tussle of his own with the IRS. Scorsese, director of famed movies like ‘Goodfellas’ and ‘Casino’ that often tell the tales of mobsters who cheat on taxes and run afoul of the law, has been slapped with a $2.85 million tax lien by the IRS.

This is not the frst time the movie mogul has been on the wrong side of the IRS. Between 2002 and 2003, the IRS fled three liens against Scorsese amounting up to almost $1.9 million and in the next year, the state of New York obtained a $149,437 tax judgment against him. However, all those tax debts have been paid.
