What? Chris Tucker Owes Uncle Sam Over $14Million!!!
American Comedian, Chris Tucker, settles huge tax bill and blames poor management for IRS lien.
This is enough to make anyone go crazy!!! Tucker's multimillion dollar tax bill isn't very funny, but he's reached a deal with the IRS to settle it, his representative said Monday.
The 'Rush Hour' actor, according to Forbes, reportedly hit with a new lien adding $2.5 million to a previous $12 million, suggesting that Mr. Tucker ran up additional back taxes for 7 years totaling $14,068,047.50. Fortunately, Mr. Tucker has reportedly reached a deal settling the huge bill.
"Chris Tucker has not incurred any new tax years," the representative said. "The current lien filing by the IRS was the result of an audit that lasted for four years which stemmed from poor accounting and business management."
"Representatives for Mr. Tucker reached a resolution with the IRS on Friday, and his case has been settled," the representative said.
A TMZ report that Tucker owed $14 million to the IRS was inaccurate, the rep said.
