Rapper On The Hook For Back Taxes Yet Again

Nas must hate to have to pay Uncle Sam.

It seems that way after the “The Get Down” producer was hit once again with a lien for six figures in back taxes, BOSSIP has learned.

The state of California’s Tax Franchise Board recently slapped the veteran rapper with a tax lien for $294,057 for income from 2014 and 2015. The amount will continue to garner interest until the debt is paid, and the state could even come for the “If I Ruled The World” rapper’s properties. The lien will also become attached to any new property that Nas decides to buy.

It’s not the first time that Nas has fallen afoul of the tax man. Earlier this year, the veteran Queens rapper has shelled out more than $3.5 million in back taxes after the IRS accused him of not paying federal income taxes in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

However, Nas isn’t totally off the hook when it comes to his tax issues. He still owes nearly $426,000 to the state of Georgia on income he earned in 2007. That amount includes a nearly $60,000 penalty, more than $57,000 in interest and a nearly $71,000 “collection fee.”
