Courtney Love -- $300k in the Hole

10/14/2009 1:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Courtney LoveUncle Sam is on a rampage -- and this time he's gunning for Courtney Love.

According to a federal tax lien filed in Los Angeles County, the former Hole lead singer owes the gub'ment $324,335.21 in back taxes from 2007.

Love's lawyer, Keith Fink, blamed her tax troubles on her former business manager -- but added, "Ms. Cobain has every intention of paying those taxes."

o rly, you're as dumb as a rock. Actually, that's an insult to the rock, as it's smarter than you. You are dumber than DIRT.

How did she even make enough in 2007 to be taxed 300k? She hasn't done anything in years!

It is so hard to believe that at one time Courtney was nominated for an Oscar in a movie role. She deserved it too. She was really good. I really thought she was "on the rise" so to speak but it seems she's blown it. That's a shame. Now when I hear about her, all I can think about is when they are going to find her dead body lying in a hotel room. She's ruined every chance she had with her behavior. Sad. I was really rooting for her at one time:(

Shouldn't one have a business before they get a business manager?

As long as Courtney has rights to Nirvana's catalog she will not be hurting for money. 300k to her is probably like $300 dollars to most folks. Not worth worrying about. It will get taken care of. Courtney is awesome, she's a fighter and a survivor. She is battling addiction. She is a loving devoted mother. She is not a media hound. She is loving and generous. We haven't herd the last from her.God bless her and Frances Bean. You can see Kirk's piercing blue eyes staring out from Frances Beans face. It is so cool. Nirvana so totally rocks!

I find it interesting every once in a while how they pull out the "Ms. Cobain" name. Seems like her whole life she's relied on other people to do everything (like write her music) now she just sits on Kurts fame and wealth from Nirvana and snorts it all away, tries to take it away from her daughter or anything else she can do.

I also find it that every article has some stupid conservatives trying to bash Obama on it...really like #9 Tyler and his imaginary 6 trillion dollar debt. People should be happy that the IRS is going after deadbeats for their taxes, regardless of who is President...and don't forget it's amid tight times, so more people are probably cheating on taxes, it has nothing to do with who is President, I wish the right wing nut jobs would have lost all internet privileges when their hero Bush started stripping America of any rights with the Patriot Act and other travesties.

The question is, how many "business managers" has she had?
She is a nut job!
Do you really think she is someone you could "manage"?

Not even possible!
