The IRS Loves the Oscars -- Hey, They've Been Doing to Taxpayers for Years What the "Brokeback" Cowboys have been Doing to Each Other

Goodie bags going to Oscar presenters don't escape the tax man's reach.

Nominees and presenters get the bags loaded with pricey prizes just for showing up.

Someone at the IRS figured the goodies are worth around a hundred grand each.

The IRS has sent out a notice that stars have to include the goodies as income on their taxes. (NYT)
