So Money Ain’t A Thing, JD? The IRS Is Coming After Jermaine Dupri For An $800K Tax Bill!
I’m betting Jermaine Dupri can’t wait for Mariah Carey’s new album to come out and surely, he’s praying for major record sales.
Jermaine Dupri is, once again, in trouble with the IRS. This time, Uncle Sam is looking for Dupri his outstanding tax bill that currently stands at about $800,000, according to TMZ.
They say he hasn’t paid his taxes for the years 2008, 2010 and 2011 where the bills were $646.47, $140,889.76 and $657.156.12, respectively.
So far, it looks like he’s in the clear for 2009.
Here’s the thing: this isn’t the first time, or second for that matter, he’s owed big dollars to the IRS. Back in 2009, he paid a $500,000 tax bill he owed the state of Georgia and in January he paid off a $5 million dollar tax lien.
I mean, do rich people (or the supposedly rich) not get embarrassed or ashamed? How many times do you have to be hit – and hit hard, no less – by someone like the IRS before you realize you need to take care of your own business? It doesn’t even matter whether or not they have the money to pay it back; why even get caught up in all those penalty and interest fees? It’s really ridiculous.
So far, no word from JD on this…situation. Hopefully, he can get this rectified.
