U.S. District Judge William Smith said Monday it was clear that Hatch had failed to refile his 2000 and 2001 tax returns, as required by a judge at the time of his 2006 sentencing. Hatch was convicted of failing to pay taxes on the $1 million prize he won on the debut season of "Survivor."

The Internal Revenue Service says he now owes about $1.7 million in taxes for those years, including interest and penalties.

Smith said he would sentence Hatch after receiving additional written arguments from lawyers on both sides.
