No Tax Day for the Cullens…
Thanks to the investigative work of intrepid Twilight reporter Amanda Bell, I discovered Carlisle Cullen landed the number one spot on Forbes richest character list, the “Fictional 15.” According to Forbes, the good doctor is worth a whopping 34.1 billion. Wow, talk about wealth privilege!
In the video accompanying the story, Nicole Perlroth reports that the IRS has been tracking Carlisle down for all the taxes he hasn’t paid for over 300 YEARS! No fair! Non-wealthy me came up owing 2,500 to the fed this year and I don’t own a private island or yacht or even a house with glass walls! Of course, that’s the grossness of our tax system – the richer you are, the less you tend to pay. Think Dr. C has any off-shore bank accounts? I bet he does!
