Lindsay Lohan

IRS Cracking Down

Over MASSIVE Tax Debt

1/10/2012 2:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan
has a brand new $93,000 problem -- because the federal government claims the actress never paid her 2009 income tax ... and now Uncle Sam is finally out to collect.

According to official documents filed in Los Angeles, the Internal Revenue Service has obtained a lien against Lohan for $93,701.57 for failure to pay her federal income tax.

2009 wasn't a very lucrative year for Lohan ... she only released one crappy made-for-TV movie, coupled with a few minor TV appearances.

Now, if Lohan refuses to pay the debt ... the government can go after anything that belongs to her ... including homes, cars and bank accounts ... assuming she has any of those things.

We called Lohan for comment -- so far, no response.

Lindsay certainly isn't the only one I've heard of that didn't pay their taxes for a year. It's the case with many other celebrities, sports figures, business people and politicians and also of some people I know. This amount owed does not sound staggering and she has avenues to make a lot of money, if not her desired ones.

In 2010 around April Lindsay broke up with Samantha, may have filed for an extension, and then went to jail in July-Aug, then to rehab, then to rehab again. She could have just thought the IRS may not get to her but they do. She could work out a payment plan as Andy said, just make sure to do it soon so interests and penalities don't accrue and make the balance owed much more. If this is just for 2009, I don't see it as a huge story.

Poor Linds is sure to be stressed out about this catching up to her.

Nothing that a quarter ounce of blow and a bottle of vodka won't fix though.

Unless the IRS is planning to search her sinuses, they will never find out where all of her money went.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

All that money and Blohan never paid off Mommy's house? What an idiot. You'd think Dina would have had the brains to pay the house off in full. Leave it to the Lohans, not a one of them own property. Milos living in apartments. Blohan rents her place and Dinas place is in foreclosure. Could this saga get any better?

What a filthy pig. She steals, cheats, lies, cons, stiffs, everyone who comes into contact with her. Not surprised in the least she didn't pay her taxes either. She makes a million dollars in this country for one days work and is extremely irritated to have to give back one cent. Go F yourself you leech.

This bitch is so far gone she can't see that blonde hair doesn't work for her. And she's a NATURAL redhead? Who's dumb enough to employ her now? Just do porn and get it overwith.

Please allow me to chime in for a few seconds with something off-topic. The link is a poll asking if Lindsay is a good choice to play Elizabeth Taylor. Earlier today it was at 60% No and 40% Yes. It is now at 52.17% No and 47.86% Yes. I'm sure Yes will go up later tonight, and I'm sure there are other polls in Lindsay's favor. Back to taxes.

Madisyn, I don't see any articles saying Dina's house is in foreclosure. She owed back taxes but if that were the case, wouldn't TMZ be all over it.

How shameful, that after living like a rock star for a few years, that it should come to this. Dina Lohan owes Nassau County $11,485.74 in taxes, presumably on the family home in Merrick. If she doesn't pay off her tax lien before tomorrow, the lien will be auctioned off, with the new lien holder earning 10% interest on the investment.

It wasn't that long ago that the momager sang a much different tune. When Lindsay was at the top of her game, Mama was right there at her side, earning her 10% and whatever additional perks (bumps) baby girl threw her way. There were the limos, the clothes, the parties, the clothes ... living vicariously never looked so good. But it doesn't last forever. Orange mama should have tucked a little cash away, but she was counting on Ali to keep the cash flowing.

But now all that has changed. Lindsay has nothing to do with her anymore, and it's just as well. She's not getting the big bucks anymore. Ali's just not catching on, no matter how grown up (read: implants) she looks. Dina will have to act fast to save her house. Expect a tell-all book in the next six months or so.

Most people is the country teachers, firefighters, police officers make under $50K a year. They pay their taxes, do community service, raise children and give to charity while maintaining full time jobs working over 40 hours a week. The disgusting pig makes 1 million dollars for one days work and is too ungrateful and selfish and narcissistic to pay one dime in taxes. No wonder everyone despises her.
