The Tax Man Cometh!

You've no doubt heard the term "swag" which refers to the unbelievable "goodie bags" that are given to celebrities during award shows or the bling that the stars chose themselves at gifting suites. The I.R.S last month determined that these items are taxable. And since some of these treats can run in the tens of thousands of dollars it can put quite a strain on the (FREE! PRADA!) Pocketbook of some of Hollywood personalities:
