Tony Gwynn reportedly owes over $400K in unpaid taxes

If they would have made it $394K…they’d get better press.

Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, who has joined with movie producer Thomas Tull in an effort to buy the San Diego Padres, owes more than $400,000 in unpaid federal income taxes, a newspaper reports.

UT San Diego reported Saturday that tax notices show Gwynn owes the government money from 2003, 2007 and 2009.

Gwynn said last month that he is working with Tull, the CEO of Legendary Pictures. Tull is among several prospective owners trying to buy the Padres from majority owner John Moores.

Gwynn’s tax attorney, Mitch Dubick, says his client is working to pay down the taxes and doesn’t believe the issue will have a bearing on his role with the ownership group.

Maybe having beaten death, Gwynn thought that taxes weren't really inevitable either.

He thought he only had to pay the Homer tax as it applied to him, not the bear tax.

That's about a buck per Twinkie since retirement.
