Lindsay Lohan

Taxes Just Ain't My Bag, Baby

1/11/2012 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan blonde hair
Lindsay Lohan
had no idea she was so deeply in the hole to Uncle Sam ... because she THOUGHT she had accountants to take care of that crap for her ... sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ... the I.R.S. hit Lohan with a big, fat tax lien, claiming she failed to fork over $93k in federal income taxes from 2009.

Now, sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she was completely unaware of the problem. We're told Lindsay actually cleaned house recently and replaced most of her business team.

Our sources say Lindsay believes the debt was most likely lost in the shuffle, but the issue will be handled immediately.

Lohan SHOULD have the cash to get herself in the clear -- after all, she just hauled in close to a million bucks to get naked for Playboy.

These are all weak stories. Celeb gets tattoo, missed paying taxes one year, con man pap tries to sue her, all ho hum. The best story TMZ didn't cover, Lindsay is in talks to play Liz. Now THAT's a story.

Maybe it is time for Dina or Michael to give a juicy story, Lindsay's stories are D list now.

Delmar, I am sure TMZ has kicked out 90k in the past two days on these boring stories. Taxes paid, end of story. I can't believe that Lindsay is considering doing a Lifetime movie. Crappy idea, low budget. I wish she would stick to quality.

Hey Delmar, I would love to see a Dina story where she confirms that she bullied her daughter into posing nude to pay DINA'S back taxes.

The real story is Lindsay's on an improvement run. And maybe her mother and father also. If she's done her court requirements which I think she has, she's on an upward slope not downward spiral. There's nothing major in scandals, no big stink during the holidays, not a lot of appearances anywhere including clubs and actually spent time with actors recently. Her father after a week or two of true craziness including jumping off a 34 foot balcony without seriously injuring himself had his time in court and is in some strange type of rehab where he gets out and does interviews. Her mother is quiet. So, the 3 scandal-prone Lohans aren't kicking up much dirt now, and I have to see that as an improvement. Can they make it last? All 3 of them? That's doubtful.

in 2009 she did "labor pains" she also got paid for "Machette"..she got resedules..from her past.
sold tabloid photos..a couple of interview..
according to $93,000 dollar fed tax debt. she didnt make over $500,000. for the whole year.
after paying dina 20% $100,000...her Rent $100,000.for the year. Plus cali wants their state Tax to boot
her legal expences, rehab ?????. her hired slaves...she was in the hole hundreds of thousands of dollars...
-------------------
How could it be her accountants fault.
that and the IRS sent her notices time and time again...
If they were not payed as of yet..then the loot is gone.
why make statements about it...If you have the money pay it..
but I think that if "Elite" is fighting for their money then its long gone

What a bunch of BS. BEFORE they put a lien on, they go through great lengths to inform the person of their debt. There were numerous phone calls, certified letters, etc. There is no way she didn't know about this, unless she's a complete idiot. Enuff said...

@Delmar, I couldn't disagree more with you. Lindsay not paying taxes is a much bigger story that she's "in talks" to play Elizabeth Taylor. At least this story is true, and it shows that once again, she's messed up. The Elizabeth Taylor story isn't a confirmed story by anybody, and it's only talks. I'm sure there are MANY actresses in talks to play Liz. She's one of many, if she is at all. That will be a story when and IF she is signed on to play Lis...and only then.

Just because the rattlesnakes been put in a cage doesn't make it safe to play with....It may look pretty and act pretty but don't put your hand in the cage cause you will get bit...
She's been on a very tight and short leach for 3 mos now and she ain't stupid....but she ain't changed either ...not by the way Lohan Inc is pounding away on their drums and selling their spin...and calling the Hawaii debuacle, and the stalker incident and now this being good is reduculious..she is doing business as usual .

I do believe this since celebs tend to have personal but wippers so why in the world would they do their own taxes? Its not an excuse though I mean people need to make sure their accountants are staying on top of things. You just dont hand over your money to someone and assume all is taken care of thats silly.

Hopefully she takes care of this asap. The feds are not to be messed with. Im sure she can just pay it up front if not go onto a payment plan. I think that since these are 2009 taxes she lost track of it since she was dealing jail, rehab, court ect ect she was clearly using drugs in 2010 which is when she would have filed for the previous year as she failled drug test she was just a mess. Also she is young not that its an excuse but I know many young people who are not finance savy. Linds should go on the Susie Orman show that would teach her!
