Baldwin admits US tax charge




Hollywood star Stephen Baldwin has admitted in court that he failed to pay New York state income tax for three years.

The actor agreed to pay $400,000 in back taxes, interest and penalties. The judge said $100,000 has already been paid.

Baldwin pleaded guilty to a charge of repeated failure to file income taxes.

The judge said that if Baldwin pays back the rest of the money within a year, the charge will be taken off his record. If not, he will be sentenced to five years probation.

Baldwin – the youngest of the four acting Baldwin brothers – went to court between appearances on 'All-Star Celebrity Apprentice'.

He said he received bad advice from lawyers and accountants.

He starred in acclaimed crime thriller 'The Usual Suspects' and appeared in the 2010 series of 'Celebrity Big Brother' in the UK.
