Terrence Howard Ordered To Pay $1M In Taxes

Terrence Howard has been ordered to pay nearly $1 million in back taxes after speaking out against “the descendants of slaves” paying taxes.

Actor Terrence Howard has been ordered to pay nearly $1 million in back taxes after expressing how “immoral” it is “for the United States government to charge taxes to the descendants of slaves.”

With the Oscar-nominated actor’s last known residence being listed in the Plymouth Meeting community of Philadelphia, Pennylvania, a Philadelphia judge has ordered him to pay the back taxes, interest, and penalties, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

“Four hundred years of forced labor and never receiving any compensation for it,” Howard said in the voicemail.

“Now you have the gall to try and prosecute and charge taxes to the descendants of a broken people that you are responsible for causing the breakage.”

After the recording cut off midsentence, Howard called the attorney back to continue his rant.

“In truth, the entire United States should, by default, become the property of the descendants of slaves,” he said. “But since you do not have the ability [or] the courage to do it, let’s try this in court. … We’re gonna bring you down.”
