Illegal Taxes


My name is Paul Baker I am the son of the late jazz trumpeter Chet Baker. My father is known world wide with over 200 recordings reaching the market. 80 or more of these recordings are being sold without a contract or payment of any kind to the estate of Chet Baker. Yet these companies are operating on sales permits supplied by the state they are located in and they pay sales tax on the illegal proceeds. They also have been paying income tax on the illegal proceeds in some cases for forty years. This is unacceptable and must stop. The IRS cannot continue to collect taxes on illegal proceeds. I would like to know just how much money in taxes have been collected over the last 40+ years by the IRS from income derived from illegal and unauthorized recordings. Does it not concern you were your tax money comes from.
