IRS Seeks To Garnish Nas’ Publishing Income
Nas’ financial battle with the Internal Revenue Service continues, over a $6 million delinquent tax bill.
According to TMZ.com, the IRS recently filed court documents seeking to garnish Nas’ earnings from his publishing companies.
The government is garnishing wages Nas earns through ASCAP and BMI, the two largest performing right Society organizations in the United States.
The performing rights organizations collect and track Nas’ music earnings from radio, television and other sources.
In February, the IRS put a lien on property Nas owns in Eagles Landing, Georgia, as well as a $339,000 tax bill for income earned in 2010.
Nas is reportedly preparing to release a new album tentatively titled Life Is Good.
