There is no reason on earth why the IRS needs to come after a person twice for unpaid taxes.
But when you’re Snoop Dogg, apparently there is a reason. For the second time in the last five years, the government is after Snoop (or Snoop Lion or real name Calvin Broadus) for trying to evade them.
This time, the IRS is looking for a payment of $101,952.44 from 2009 and $444,317.85 from 2011, for a grand total of $546,270.29. They’ve put a federal lien against him for said taxes.
Back in 2008, the IRS was after him for more than $400,000 in back taxes. As soon as Snoop was made aware, he paid them off and cleared his debt.
Now, while I’m sure Snoop has an accountant or two on his payroll, it seems like it would make sense for him to either seek entirely new employees or hire someone to watch them so things like this won’t happen more than once.He’s got to be pretty high way too often for allowing this to keep happening.
TMZ reach out to Snoop’s reps but haven’t received any comments.
It is amazing that, for the most part, it seems like average working people do the very best we can to pay our taxes on time so that Uncle Sam isn’t sending us letters about owing something like $500. Meanwhile, celebrities always find a way to go years without paying only to owe hundreds of thousands of dollars and not give it a second thought.
Are we, the working class, doing something wrong by trying to so hard to do things the right way? If so, I’ll be that because I’m not trying to have the IRS come after me for even five dollars of unpaid taxes!
