IRS: Elvis Mitchell Owes Us $500,000


Former NYT reviewer and current Turner Classic Movies host Elvis Mitchell is experiencing yet another of his notorious financial hiccups, with the IRS having slapped him with two tax liens last month totaling nearly $370,000. That's in addition to the $136,000 lien outstanding from 2007. Mitchell last experienced money troubles in 2008 when he attempted to bring $10,000 in undeclared cash and 15 Cuban cigars across the Canadian border. No one here is judging of course, but still: That's a hell of a tax bracket for a cable movie-show host and NPR personality. Are they hiring? [Detroit News via NYP]
