According to TMZ reports:
Lil Kim is going to the tax lien Hall of Fame — because the Queen Bee has run her bill with Uncle Sam into the seven figures … TMZ has learned.
Lil Kim’s tax problems are well-documented and go back nearly 10 years. According to documents filed with the L.A. Recorder’s Office, Kim owes money every year from 2002-2009.
The 2009 amount, $86347.85, was just recently tacked on — bringing her total $1,026,862.42.
Calls to Lil Kim’s rep were not returned.
SMH… Sorry boo, all that plastic surgery is not tax deductible!
Well Lil Kim’s folks might not be speaking to TMZ but they sent us the following response to the allegations.
Per Team Lil Kim:
It is a known fact that for some time TMZ has been running stories on celebrities or well known persons of interest and providing the general public and media with publicly accessible information on random celebrities and their private matters with the internal revenue service,this does not come as a surprise, as it is Tax Season and is a sell-able media opportunity,it is for no other reason that Kimberly Jones(aka: LIL KIM) is now the target of such random media scrutiny.As it pertains to the story that was ran onTMZ(February 4,2012)regarding Lil Kim, we would like to inform fans,media, and the general public,that LIL KIM has hired professional attorneys to handle this matter(embellished by all standards via the media), and that she,along with her team of legal experts are working cooperatively and diligently with the I.R.S and federal authorities to amicably resolve the situation.
There you have it. Kim is handling her business. Hope she finds a way to pay it back because Uncle Sam doesn’t play about his money, just ask Wesley Snipes and Ronald Isley.
