Nic Cage -- Debt Man Walkin'

10/9/2009 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicolas Cage is the new six million dollar man -- as in, the government claims dude owes more then $6,000,000 in unpaid back taxes.

A notice of a federal tax lien -- obtained by TMZ -- shows the "National Treasure" actor made a serious dent in the national debt -- allegedly stiffing the IRS out of $6,257,005 he owed in income tax from 2007.

But it gets worse, Uncle Sam also claims Cage is a repeat tax deadbeat -- because according to another federal tax lien, Cage still owes a ton of cash from three more years of unpaid debts:

2002 -- $70,190.05

2003 -- $179,738.23

2004 -- $110,617.56

Which brings Nic to a grand total of $6,617,550.84 -- almost enough for the government to buy a hammer.

Cage's rep had no immediate comment.

TMZ, glad to see you caught your earlier misprint this am, I am sure Nicholas Coppola pka Cage would not appreciate having his social security number out there for all to see, along with his address.

I'd sell my soul to the devil to learn how to screw the IRS and U.S. Govt out of $6 million while raking in millions in undeclared income. Oh yes, teach me Master Cage and all you other celeb low life!

Funny how Wesley Snipes goes to jail for tax evasion, Method Man might go to jail and yet nothing about Nicholas Cage and jail time. Why doesn't anybody else question that?

Does Cage have the same accounting firm as Charlie Rangel and Michael Jackson, and Tim Geitner? What is with these people?

At least Nicholas Cage has "lived". All men die, but very few "live".
