Nelly’s Tour Profits To Be Seized In Order To Pay $2.4 Million Tax Lien
We previously EXCLUSIVELY reported that the state of Missouri accused Nelly of refusing to pay up on a $150,000 in state taxes, and is suing the 90s rap star to garnish the his bank accounts to collect on the massive debt.
According to official records filed in Missouri, the Department of Revenue filed a lien against Nelly, aka Cornell Haynes II, accusing him of owing a total of $149,511.69 for unpaid taxes for the year 2013.
The lien explains that original amount due for the year was $113,533 but with interest ($7,590.94) and additional costs and fees ($28,383.25) the amount has swelled to $150,000.
The authorities are issuing a garnishment execution to Ticketmaster, in an attempt to seize any money Nelly is owed or will be owed in the future. The rapper currently has 4 dates on Ticketmaster’s website for upcoming performances, which clearly indicate that the Department of Revenue is attempting to seize any profits Nelly was supposed to receive for the shows.
Ticketmaster has yet to answer the garnishment execution aka respond with how much – if any – Nelly is owed from them for past or future work.
Last month, the IRS hit the rapper with a Federal Tax Lien accusing him of refusing to pay up on a $2.4 million bill. The lien is the first step in the process of seizing any assets & property he owns, to collect on the massive $2 million debt he owes.
