goocher - You have got to be an idiot to say "I've never paid my taxes".
If anything I wouldn't tell a soul.

You'd have to be a bigger idiot to think Nick managed to collect checks from Pride, UFC, and Strikeforce for the last 10 years, without paying taxes, and the IRS never caught up to him.
This. I get it. I've been thinking this since he said it. He's just fucking around. Phone Post

There's a big difference between not doing your tax return and not paying taxes. The IRS is not stupic, actually they just announced that there is over $1 billion in unclaimed tax refunds I read last Friday from people that don't do their tax returns. Nick Diaz anybody? The guy is so lazy he doesn't do his taxes. The IRS deducts taxes from wages, any pay cheque Need got in the last 10 years the IRS already took a good chunk of it. Nick may actually be owed a refund, but you can only get a refund for the last 3 years. The IRS is probably laughing at Nick, why would they arrest a guy the US government owe tax refunds to? Ain't gonna happen.

The IRS does not deduct any money.

Of course the IRS deducts money from your pay cheque. Have you never seen a pay cheque? I'm a CPA by the way. But you don't need to be a CPA to know that, if you do your taxes every year you would know that your tax refund equals your total tax deductions less your tax payable. I haven't paid taxes in the last 24 years, since I started working for a pay cheque. Every year I got a tax refund.

You see it's called source deductions, every american that has a job pays his taxes when he gets a pay cheque. At the time you do your tax return (once a year) most people get a tax refund from the government. There's no such thing as an employee not paying taxes, the government takes it from your pay cheque. Unless you are being paid under the table and your employer doesn't remit to the IRS, but I'm sure the UFC would remit the money to the IRS from a fighter's pay cheque, just like every employer does in America.

OK, here's the link to CNBC's article. Guys like Nick Diaz that don't do their tax returns are actually owed money by the government. http://www.cnbc.com/id/100557898

I worked as a contractor for about ten years and the IRS did not deduct anything. I received all my checks from my employer with nothing whatsoever deducted and paid my taxes separately. You're a CPA and you didn't realize this was possible?

when you are an independent contractor or sole proprietor you need to pay the IRS at the end of the year. Your checks come with no tax deductions whatsoever.

If you spell it as "cheque," then I'm not listening to a goddamn thing you have to say about US tax law.

I wouldn't consider Diaz an "employee". Probably more like a contractor. I get paid as a contractor and I get all my money. It's up to me to file a return and pay my taxes. Look how many huge hollywood starts get nailed owing millions of dollars and they have to sell everything they own. You don't think Nick could slip into that kind of situation? It's probably easier than you think.

I've got an MBA with a major in accounting and I'm a licensed CPA in two states.

I can assure you that Nick Diaz cheque gets a deduction sent to the IRS. The IRS will get the taxes right off the UFC paycheque. They aren't stupid. There's no way that big cheque to a pro fighter that can spend it all would go without deductions. You don't even need to have a job for the IRS to take your money. Any big pay cheque the IRS takes the money right away, they do not wait for you to do a tax return. Win big at a casino? The tax man takes it before you go home. Win a lottery ticket? Same thing. The purses of prize fighters are certainly taxed at source. The UFC pays Nick Diaz taxes from his pay cheque.
