It was less than 2 years ago when Aretha Franklin paid off a $190,000 delinquent tax bill, but she has found herself in trouble with Uncle Sam once again. It was reported that the state of Michigan filed a lien against Franklin in the amount of $11,076.
This is the latest in a string of late payments and debt that drew headlines two years ago. Franklin paid off those debts and took her lien-free pipes -- and hat -- to President Obama's inauguration last year.
But Franklin also owes 2009 delinquent taxes of $33,729 on her Bloomfield Hills home, according to the Oakland County Treasurer's Office. If unpaid, she would face foreclosure in 2012.
