Don’t Mess With Uncle Sam’s Money: Flo Rida In Hot Water For Owing $1.2 Million In Unpaid Taxes
Uncle Sam has Flo Rida’s head spinning “right round” with a whopping $1.2 million tax lien. The Wild Ones rapper, whose real name is Tramar Lacel Dillard, is accused of owing the IRS large sums of cash between 2009 and 2011, Radar Online reports.
The legal document, acquired by Radar, was filed on Jan. 2; the federal record states that Dillard is behind on three payments: $343,317.03 in 2009, $10,245.41 in 2010, and $844,093.00 in 2011. Altogether, the Right Round musician owes the taxman $1,197,655 — and 44 cents.
“We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid. Therefore there is a lien in favor of the United States on all property and rights belonging to this taxpayer for the amount of these taxes, and additional penalties, interest, and cost that may accrue,” the federal filing stated.
This isn’t the first time Flo Rida was singled out for unpaid taxes. In 2012, the rapper owed the IRS $1,040,777.45 and there was a lien against his 2.3-acre Miami estate, according to Gossip Extra.
The chart-topping artist is one of the many, in recent years, who have gotten on Uncle Sam’s bad side including Kelis, Damon Dash, Faith Evans, Fat Joe, Jurmaine Dupri, and Mary J. Blige. It’s getting a little ridiculous, isn’t it?
