IRS Files $1.13M Tax Lien Against Lil Wayne

From WebCPA:

The Internal Revenue Service has filed a tax lien for $1,138,760 against rap singer Lil Wayne, who is currently in jail on weapons charges.

The lien covers taxes owed from 2004, 2005 and 2007. The 27-year-old performer, also known as Weezy but whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., has had problems with the IRS in the past. The IRS filed a lien for $977,840 against him in 2008, but he paid the taxes he owed later that year, according to the Detroit News.

Carter was arrested in July 2007 for possessing a .40 caliber pistol and marijuana following a performance at New York’s Beacon Theatre. He pleaded guilty to the weapons charge and is currently serving a one-year sentence on Rikers Island in New York.
