    Reuters reports that actor Wesley Snipes, serving a three-year prison sentence for failing to file income tax returns, suffered a legal setback on Monday when the Supreme Court refused to review his case.

    Snipes, 48, was convicted in 2008 in a Florida court for willful failure to file federal tax returns from 1999 through 2001. The actor has served nearly one year of his three-year term and has been accused of not filing personal income tax returns and not paying any taxes from 1999 through 2004 despite earning more than $37 million as an actor and producer.

    The lesson here is don't eff with Uncle Sam.
