Uncle Sam To Take R. Kelly’s Assets If He Doesn’t Pay Up ASAP
R. Kelly is risking his property and assets being seized by the federal government because he’s refused to pay lose to $1 million in back taxes – the latest in a long list of financial troubles for the singer.
Recently, the IRS slapped the singer with a federal tax lien by the IRS in Cook County, Illinois.
Uncle Sam accuses R. Kelly – real name Robert Kelly – of screwing them out of $730,683.80 in taxes owed for 2013.
The lien explains if he doesn’t pay up on the debt they will begin seizing his assets and property to collect on their money.
This is the latest in a string of money troubles for the singer over the years. The IRS hit him earlier this year with a separate lien over $191,614.35 in back taxes for 2012.
The grand total for the two liens comes to a whopping $922,298.15.
Back in 2014, the Illinois Department of Revenue hit the singer with a State Tax Lien accusing him of refusing to pay up for the years 2009, 2011 and 2012. The document said Kelly owed a total of $146,532.96 for the three years.
Kelly has a long history of tax issues. The IRS said R. Kelly’s tax debt is $6,227,767 for unpaid federal taxes during the years 2005 through 2011.
