Lil’ Wayne Owes The IRS

Categories NewsPosted on

From the Detroit News:

Cough syrup-chugging, law-skirting rapper Lil Wayne owes some serious cash money to the IRS, which filed a $1.13 million tax lien against the star last month, according to Florida court records.

It’s the second monster tax problem for Lil Wayne, real name Dwayne Carter. The IRS filed a $977,840 lien against him two years ago, but the platinum-selling artist paid it off in August 2008.

And there’s more good news. Late last month, he satisfied a $146,000 civil judgment won by a jeweler who never got paid in full for selling the rapper an 18-carat necklace and a $138,000 platinum ring, according to this Dade County court record.

What’s owed:

• The IRS filed a $1,138,760 lien against Carter on June 3 in Dade County (Fla.) Circuit Court. According to the lien, which you can see here, he owes income taxes from 2004, 2005 and 2007. The address on the lien is the same office occupied by his One Family Foundation charity.

Call me crazy, but I’d bet whoever wrote this isn’t the biggest Lil’ Wayne fan…
