Sooner or later, Uncle Sam will find you. From TMZ:

According to documents filed in May by Uncle Sam, Kelis did not pay federal income taxes 9 years ago … to the tune of $134,931.59.

As TMZ first reported, the singer also skipped out on her NY state taxes in 2004 and 2010 … as well as 2 years of CA state and federal taxes — add on the new lien, and her total debt comes to $741,027.59.

In related news — Kelis recently sold a condo in NYC for about $2.2 million … so she might have the scratch to settle up with the taxman.
