Nic Cage's new line: I'll pay the tax, (IRS) man


After taking a pounding from Uncle Sam, Nicolas Cage is ready to cry uncle.

Cage, the Oscar winner turned accused tax cheat, said he's making amends with the IRS. The 46-year-old said he's paid what amounts to a national treasure to the IRS -- $70 million -- during his career. "Unfortunately, due to a recent legal situation, another approximate $14 million is owed to the IRS," he told People Magazine in a story published Friday.
