*Katt Williams can now add tax troubles to his mounting legal woes.
TMZ is reporting that the IRS just pimp slapped the comedian with a tax lien totaling over $4 million, claiming he failed to pay $3.2 million in taxes in 2008, and also bailed on another $829,352 in 2009.
Williams is also accused of stiffing the Feds in 2010, when the IRS filed another tax lien against the comedian totaling $284,000.
It’s the latest misfortune to befall Katt in the last few months — he’s been arrested several times and is facing a bunch of lawsuits.
*When the tax man is on your case, it’s good to have money. A LOT of money. Just ask Lil Wayne.
The lil’ feller paid off back IRS taxes for a total $7.72 million, Jose Lambiet’s Gossip Extra is reporting.
According to court filings, the tatted out chart-topping singer of Got Money and Lolli Pop became the target of not just one but THREE liens for unpaid income levy.
The rapper owed $3,351,077.95 for 2008 and $2,258,956 and 4 cents for 2009, according to Miami-Dade County records.
The IRS wisely waited for Lil Wayne to buy a place on La Gorce Island before coming down on him like a rapper’s posse.
Until Wayne plunked down $11.6 million for a 15,000-square-foot crib on La Gorce Circle last September, he was renting a place and did have the kind of asset that the IRS loves to lien.
But the moment Wayne become a proud Miami Beach homeowner, the liens rained down on him!
Lil Wayne, meanwhile, isn’t the only South Florida rapper with tax issues. In September, Gossip Extra reported that Flo Rida was hit with a $1 million-back tax bill.
