Lil Jon Owes The IRS Over Half A Million Dollars
Crunk pioneer the latest in a long line of artists to be sued by the government
If you are a musician who has been slacking on paying your taxes in the last few years you may want to remedy that because chances are you’re going to find yourself in the IRS’s crosshairs if you don’t. Lil Jon is yet another artist to come under scrutiny by the government agency.
The Detroit News is reporting that on June 24, 2008 the IRS put a $638,937 lien on the rapper’s Isle of Palms home. The home was listed at $1.9 million dollars. It was foreclosed on this past August.
Lil Jon’s next project is Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice where he will act as a contestant. Coincidentally, according to the Detroit News, six other members of that show’s cast have faced tax trouble in the past.
