This is how many days he has left in prison.



Everybody hide your W-2s, because notorious tax dodger Wesley Snipes has been released from prison. Well, sort of, anyways. And just in time for April 15, too!

RadarOnline confirms the 50-year-old actor was released from McKean Federal Correction Institution in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. He was transferred to a community corrections program in New York state, meaning he was put under house arrest until July 19.

Snipes has been in prison for a three-year stint for not paying income taxes on $38 million in earnings. He was convicted in 2008 and has been in the pokey since December 2010. Did that really happen more than two years ago? It's about time to make another Blade movie, looks like.
