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.

It seems the IRS is the only agency that doesn't give special treatment to celebs.

When does owing back taxes become tax evasion? Did she pay her taxes in 2010? According to Smitty, she has earned over 2 million dollars for 2011, how much will those taxes be?
I wonder if this is why Lou Taylor quit?

How the hell do you rack up 93k in tax debt when it "wasn't your year" !? Sounds like it WAS her year... I don't get it. High taxes mean high income.

I'm glad the IRS at least is going after these lowlife famous, rich people! LieHo (and many other rich people) should go to federal prison for tax evasion just like Wesley Snipes!

This explains why she's making payments to the court for her fees, instead of paying it off all at once.

Hahahahaha! What a loser. Today on TMZ, she's being sued by a papparazzi because she hit him with her car while trying to peel away from a club, and the IRS has nailed her with a $90k+ tax lien because SHE'S A TAX CHEAT. Like #2 poster has said, her days of getting choice acting jobs are over because more talented actresses like Emma Stone (who have talent, yet refuse to play the "look at me!" game like blowhan) are being cast instead of her...

Liz from Australia     

What is up with all these Hollywood 'stars' (I use that term loosely. They make a **** load of money, yet are too tight to pay taxes. The USA should do it like Australia. You get income tax taken from you pay before you even get it, then when you do your taxes yearly if you had more taken out then they should have you receive a return. Simple.

Up next....DUI case resolved but Federal Court appearance starts. She can ask Wesley Snipes how this ends.

Good riddance!    

Another self caused problem for Ducklips McCracken because she couldn't be bothered to do the correct thing. Doing the right thing is beneath her, of course.

The IRS doesn't play games. If she doesn't pay, this time she WILL go to jail.
