Al Pacino

Targeted By IRS Over

3/7/2011 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Al Pacino -- whose movies have grossed over $1 BILLION -- owes the IRS $188k ... TMZ has learned.

The Internal Revenue Service just filed a tax lien against Pacino -- claiming he slighted the government out of $169,143.06 in 2008 and $19,140.44 in 2009 ... for a grand total of $188,283.50.

A rep for Pacino tells TMZ ... Al never intended to screw over Uncle Sam ... and blames the whole thing on his former business manager Kenneth Starr ... not the guy from Lewinsky fame ... the convicted Ponzi schemer who was just sentenced to seven years in prison for bilking a bunch of Hollywood bigwigs out of millions. 

Pacino's people tell us .. Al has new management and is looking to remedy the situation ASAP.

Ok, so he owes "a lot" of money. After he checks it out to make sure they aren't screwing HIM, can't he just write them a check and end this? Why do these rich celeb things even go this far? Just write the damn check, you must have a savings account with millions in it
