Irs Man Charged With Snooping On Celebs' Returns

An IRS tax examiner in Cincinnati has been charged with snooping on the tax records of more than 200 film and TV personalities and sports stars, The Smoking Gun website reported today (Monday). In a misdemeanor criminal complaint posted on the TSG website, authorities charged 56-year-old John Snyder with accessing the computerized tax records of such celebrities as Eddie Albert, Kevin Bacon, Alec Baldwin, Timothy Bottoms, Chevy Chase, John Cleese, directors Joel and Ethan Coen (whose names appeared as "Cohen"), Sally Field, Penny Marshall, Randy Quaid, and Vanna White. The complaint said that Snyder accessed their tax records "for which no business-related purpose could be identified" and that when confronted with evidence of his spying, he confessed, "stating that he did so out of curiosity."
