Get it? He’s got a “situation”? Eh? Eh?

Okay, I’ll stop. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, best (and only) known from his time on Jersey Shore, is in some hot water with the US government and has been charged with tax fraud conspiracy for not paying taxes on $8.9 million worth of income.

Here’s the scoop from People:

Court documents obtained by PEOPLE show that both Sorrentino and his brother are each charged with one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States, plus an additional two counts of filing false returns for the reality star, while his brother faces three.

He is also charged with failing to file a tax return in 2011, when he earned more than $1.9 million in income.

“From in or about January 2010 through in or about November 2013, in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, in the District of New Jersey and elsewhere, defendants Marc Sorrentino and Michael Sorrentino, aka ‘The Situation,’ did knowingly and intentionally conspire and agree with each other and others to defraud the United States by impeding, impairing, obstructing, and defeating, through deceitful and dishonest means, the lawful functions of the IRS, a constituent agency of the United States Department of the Treasury, to ascertain, compute, assess, and collect federal income taxes,” the document states.

Y’all, when will people learn that the IRS is no joke?
