Mike The Situation Sorrentino was just charged with tax evasion in New Jersey. Reports are saying that Mike didn’t pay his full tax bill on almost $9 million in earnings! 

In the indictment, the reality star and his brother, Marc Sorrentino, were both charged with filing false tax returns. Mike was charged with two counts and Marc with three!

U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman told US Weekly in a statement, “According to the indictment, Michael and Marc Sorrentino filed false tax returns that incorrectly reported millions made from promotions and appearances. The brothers allegedly also claimed costly clothes and cars as business expenses and funneled company money into personal accounts. The law is absolutely clear: telling the truth to the IRS is not optional.”

According to TMZ, Mike and Marc were booked and released today on $250K bond. Their arraignment will be on Oct. 6.

Mike took to Instagram to express his thoughts on the legal matters. The photo says, “To be old and wise you must first be young and dumb.”
