While she may be enjoying the beauty of motherhood after welcoming her baby girl Pilar with fiancé Dennis McKinley on March 22, a recent report by the Daily Mail claims that Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is in financial trouble with the IRS.
Williams reportedly owes $240,624.10 in back taxes to the federal agency, stemming from the 2009-2017 tax year. $197,907.58, makes up the bulk of the bill, and originates from the 2017 tax year, the outlet reports.
According to documents obtained by the Daily Mail, the IRS may ask for payment in the amount of the worth of her Georgia home.
“We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid,” states the lien.
“Therefore, there is a lien in favor of the United States on all property and rights to property belonging to this taxpayer for the amount of theses taxes, and additional penalties, interest, and costs that may accrue.”
But a source close to Williams told US Weekly that she’s all paid up and ready to dismiss the drama.“Porsha employs professionals to handle her finances and was totally unaware of any issue related to money owed to the IRS,” the source said. “The bill has been settled — there are no outstanding debts.”
Williams, who first appeared on RHOA in 2012, has definitely faced financial hardship before.
Shortly after her marriage to ex NFL player Kordell Stewart dissolved, the reality star was left to fend for herself after Stewart filed the divorce leaving her with virtually nothing.
As a result, viewers watched Williams lift herself up by moving into her mother’s home in order to recoup some of her earnings.
Fast forward to now, Williams has launched several successful businesses on her own including a hair line, a bedding line and secures a check as a host on Dish Nation.
