On That Lien: IRS Goes After Snoop Dogg Over $546k Tax Debt
On February 8th, the IRS hit Snoop D-O-double-G with a tax lien claiming the rapper owes $546,270.29 in unpaid back taxes according to documents obtained by TMZ.
The documents claim the ”Gin & Juice” MC owes $101, 952.44 in unpaid taxes for 2009 and $444,317.85 in 2011. One possible reason for Snoop’s back rent could be him paying back another tax lien from the IRS back in 2011 for roughly $467,000 in back taxes dating back to 2008.
Forbes reports that Snoop Dogg raked in $14 million in 2011 and $11 million in 2009 while recently only pulling in $8 million in 2012. With a new documentary arriving on March 15th and his 12th studio album expecting a Spring release (with the DVD of the documentary) it looks like Snoop’s lucrative 2013 could partially go to Uncle Sam.
