Federal Tax Lien

Against Nas

It Was Written

10/19/2009 1:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

isn't the only person trying to get money from Nas -- turns out Uncle Sam is too!

TMZ has obtained a federal tax lien filed last month against Nas for a whopping $2,584,206.31. Looks like Nas didn't pay his taxes in 2006 and 2007.

Nas is currently involved in a bitter divorce battle with Kelis. Looks like she'll have to wait in line.

Yet another Celebrity that owes Taxes. WT.F do they think because they are wealthy they are excluded and don't need to pay taxes like everyone else?

Or are they stupid and let someone handle their finances without ever looking it?

whats up Doctors    

I owed the IRS once,and they put a lien on my check, I was taking home about $800.00 a week after taxes, The lien hit, and I was left $125.00 a week to live on. I talked to the front office and told them I can't live on this , they told me, their hands were tied by law,and that they were sorry. I had to get a Bankruptcy Lawyer and file for Bankruptcy to stop it

I am sad that this Nas makes that much money to owe over 2 mil in taxes. If this was the average Joe, he would have been in jail. Who do these celebs think they are. I made a mistake once on state unemployement taxes of $232.00. The letter stated if not paid in 30 days, they would come and lock down my business. This is a joke. There should be no delay, he should pay up now.

For all of you that are wondering, Nas is a rapper that has been high in popularity for many years now. He is respected because of how true he is to the game and his lyrical intelligence. Kelis is a female Hip-hop/R&B singer who was once married to Nas. If you want to hear something by Nas go listen to "Hero" or "Got Yourself a Gun".
