Tax Man vs Batman

Val Accused

of $500k Debt

0729_val_kilmer_reg_tmz_01-1Something reeks in the state of New Jersey -- and if the IRS is correct, it's Val Kilmer's tax records.

Kilmer is on the hook for $538,858 in unpaid federal taxes, this according to a lien filed by the IRS on July 15 in Jersey.

It's unclear why the lien, which was dug up by The Detroit News, was filed in New Jersey. Kilmer, who is originally from Los Angeles, has been living in New Mexico for the last 20 years.

So who cares he can't act so he's held up at his New Mexico compound paranoid about the IRS trying to land another B-list movie to pay his taxes so what I wouldn't reconize this man if he was walking down my block.

The IRS is required to file the tax lien in the person's county of residence. If Kilmer doesn't live in Bergen County, NJ, then the IRS has been sending all their letters to the wrong person and/or the wrong address. It's their responsibility to get it riight otherwise the person they want money from doesn't know. It also may void the lien (not sure, though).

The other possibility is that the tax lien attributed to Val Kilmer and filed in NJ actually belongs to a NJ resident of the same name, and not the actor. (Bergen is a wealthy county).

I think the IRS made a mistake; also many people in the Obama administration did not pay taxes at all.

Didn't pay taxes? Maybe he can be another member of the Obama cabinet? Put him in charge of state propaganda.

Val Kilmer is not Batman. Don't get it twisted TMZ, Adam West and Michael Keaton are the ONLY celebs worthy of association with the name Batman.
