Survivor winner Richard Hatch says he thought CBS would withhold taxes
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Survivor winner Richard Hatch says he thought C-B-S was responsible for the taxes on his reality show winnings -- and that's why he didn't pay them. Hatch is accused by the government of failing to pay taxes on the one (m) million dollars he won on the first season of the hit C-B-S show.

The Newport resident tells A-P Radio that he's "absolutely not guilty." His lawyer says Hatch should have been classified as an employee of C-B-S -- so C-B-S should have withheld taxes. He says it was never made clear whether C-B-S had paid taxes on Hatch's (m) million dollar check.

The U-S attorney's office in Providence won't respond to Hatch's comments. Prosecutors have turned Hatch's case over to a grand jury, which will examine the evidence and decide whether to indict the reality show star.
