Alleged Baby Killer Casey Anthony -- The $68,000 Bill

5/26/2011 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Accused child murderer Casey Anthony is in more hot water with the feds -- the I.R.S. believes she failed to pay $68k in taxes back in 2008 ... the same year she allegedly killed her 2-year-old daughter.

TMZ obtained a tax lien filed against Anthony in Florida last week -- and according to the document, Casey never forked over $68,520 in federal taxes in 2008.

Casey was charged with first-degree murder the same year -- and is currently on trial in Orlando, FL ... facing the death penalty if convicted.

Calls to Casey's attorney were not immediately returned.

That totally makes sense who ever said it. She totally had to have sold pictures of Kaylee to make that kind of money. I will tell you this though she REALLY is one sick twisted woman..so you kill your daughter then SELL pics of her in an attempt to look innocent to the media?? WOW!!

Yes she isn't proven guilty YET..but I will tell you this...if my daughter went missing I sure as hell wouldn't have been out dancing on bars 2 days later and getting wasted! She is a disgusting human being...NOT to mention the fact that she won't even take the stand her her own daughters murder trial?? GUILTY...GUILTY....GUILTY!!! Hope they fry her ass!!!

Casey got her money by selling pictures of Caylee. Casey got it, but didn't declare it.

Wonder if she didn't declare her porn photo profits to the IRS as well?

I would bet this tax bill is for the $200k she received for pics of Caylee she sold to a TV network. That is called income, therefore, she should need to pay taxes on that.

Thank you Mary Ann --- You actually give hope to all commenters on here that you actually knew the answer and didn't need to stupid about it. I bow down to you !!! Yes this is money she got from selling pictures to pay for her defense, although the taxpayers (how ironic) are now footing the bill for the rest of the costs for this bogus defense!

How utterly pathetic that this evil monster profited off her child's death. Funny thing is, she probably knows nothng about filing income taxes since she never made enough money to make it worth her time.
And she is stupid enough to think that when she sold those pictures she didn't think they would tax her on that income. Wouldn't she have gotten a 1099 from the networks that she sold the pictures too? I'm not entirely sure about that, but lets face it, I don't think the IRS knew that her new address was the county jail either.
So it just got lost in the mail, sorta like Caylee just got lost with the babysitter !!!
I think it's so ironic that she made this money to pay for her defense, then became indigent and now the taxpayers are paying for her defense. But that would be state taxes not federal taxes. It's just ironic though !

She should get the death penalty for stiffing the IRS.

Opening statements have already started shedding some light on the weight of the issue on trial. As reported in the Orlando Sentinel, “the prosecution will start to lay out a case heavy with raw emotion. http://bit.ly/k080WU

I totally agree with you Lisa. Bozo Baez is slime and has/had several ethic violation complaints against him made to the Florida bar. Even Judge Striklin contacted the bar about him.

Did you noticed that when one of Casey’s team puts their hand on her back, she turns on the fake tears. She's been coached. I hope that baby killer gets what she deserves.

So, will they convict her, even though the prosecution has not proven that she is guilty. No wittnesses, no finger prints, no cause of death. They've got bugs and hair, but so what? That only attempts to show that the body was decomposing in a trunk for a while. They have made no direct connection. Tuesday or Wednesday, they'll play the tear-jerker video of the baby singing, "You Are My Sunshine" to her great grandfather, and that's supposed to bring a conviction? They better do better than that. PS. I'll cry too if I watch it. It's the worst thing that can happen to a parent, or especially in this case, to a grandparent and a great grandparent. How tragic.

That is correct if she sold photos or video of her and Caylee, that is all considered income. So, she needs to pay in to the government just like the rest of us AMERICANS!!! Casey Anthony just continues to make one mistake after another. That serves her right. What comes around goes around and it is Casey's turn.

Defense set to call first witness in Casey Anthony trial
Updated: Thursday, 16 Jun 2011, 7:43 AM EDT
Published : Thursday, 16 Jun 2011, 5:37 AM EDT
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The defense is expected to call its first witness in the Casey Anthony murder trial. Anthony is accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter in 2008.
The prosecution has presented all its evidence and Thursday jurors will look towards Anthony's attorneys to begin delivering on several promises they made at the outset to explain why the
25-year-old's child is dead.
Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of toddler Caylee in the summer of 2008 and has pleaded not guilty. The state says she was suffocated by her mother with duct tape. The
defense contends she drowned in her grandparents' swimming pool and her body was disposed of by her grandfather. Her skeletal remains were found in December 2008.
If convicted Casey Anthony faces a death sentence.
