The performer is indebted to the government for a surprising $627,987.06 in back taxes for years 1999-2001, according to TMZ.
A tax lien was filed against him in 2004, but he obviously didn’t pay up. So another was filed against him last month, but if this time if he doesn’t pay up, all his wonderful possessions are going to Uncle Sam.
Wait a minute. Hold up! Jordan says he paid his bill years ago after he sold his music catalog. He claims that the money has been sitting in an account administered by a division of the U.S. Justice Department that oversees bankruptcy cases.
And how’s this for irony? His signature hit signature song, “This Is How We Do It,” serves as the soundtrack for Jackson Hewitt Tax Service’s TV advertising campaign, called “Jackson Hewitt’s How You Do It.”
Jordan, who filed for bankruptcy in 2004, says he is disputing some of the penalties that have been levied against him by the feds, reports NewsOne.
