Michael Jackson's Former GM Under Probation for Non-filing of Taxes


Michael Jackson’s former general manager, Raymone Bain was put under probation by a judge for failing to file her income tax for the years 2006 to 2008. US Magistrate judge Alan Kay sentenced Bain to five years’ probation and fined her $202,422 in back taxes to the IRS and the District of Columbia. In a tearful response to the charges against her, Bain claimed that her failure to file her taxes was due to being unable to cope with Jackson’s financial affairs and the ailing health of her mother.

Prosecutors said Bain earned $30,000 a month as general manager of Michael Jackson Co. and pressed for a deterrent sentence of one and a half years. Prosecutor Karen Kelly told the judge, “It’s important that the law-abiding taxpayers of the United States are not dupes for following the law”.
