Actor Stephen Baldwin makes payment on NY tax bill
NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) — An attorney for actor Stephen Baldwin says the “The Usual Suspects” star has made another $100,000 installment payment on his unpaid New York taxes.
Attorney Russell Yankwitt says Friday’s payment brings his total paid to $300,000. He’s got $100,000 more to go.
Baldwin admitted last March that he failed to pay state taxes for 2008, 2009 and 2010.
The total bill in taxes, interest and penalties was $400,000, but Baldwin paid $100,000 before entering his guilty plea.
Yankwitt says he paid the same amount in October.
Under a deal with prosecutors, Baldwin’s record will be wiped clean if he pays the full amount by April 11. If not, he faces five years of probation.
The 47-year-old Baldwin lives in Upper Grandview. His brothers Alec, William and Daniel are also actors.
