“Don’t mess with Texas.”
So goes the legendary, unofficial, combative slogan of the Lone Star state. While “messing with Texas” can earn you the vague, undefined ire of Texans everywhere, the penalties for “messing with taxes” are a bit easier to define, and can lead to having your wages garnished, or worse, jailtime.
Of course, the stereotypical mentality of most Texans is that they don’t care for outside interference, particularly from the government, and as such, when looking at a list of celebrities who are either from Texas, or had trouble with their taxes, it’s harder to guess which is which than you might think.
Take Matthew McConagney here. Is he from Texas? Or did he have trouble with his taxes? Or BOTH?!!!
