Lil Kim

Breaks the Million Dollar

Tax Lien Mark

2/4/2012 7:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Kim
Lil Kim is going to the tax lien Hall of Fame -- because the Queen Bee has run her bill with Uncle Sam into the seven figures ... TMZ has learned. 

Lil Kim's tax problems are well-documented and go back nearly 10 years. According to documents filed with the L.A. Recorder's Office, Kim owes money every year from 2002-2009.

The 2009 amount, $86347.85, was just recently tacked on -- bringing her total $1,026,862.42.

Congratulations?

A rep for Lil Kim emailed TMZ to say she has "hired professional attorneys to handle this matter" and that "she, along with her team of legal experts, are working cooperatively and diligently with the IRS and federal authorities to amicably resolve the situation."

Maybe if she hadn't gotten all that plastic surgery she'd have the money for her taxes. Pretty sad that someone who used to be kind of attractive went and did that to herself long before she was old enough to actually need some touch ups.

I BET YOU REGRET ALL THOSE LUXURY CARS AND CRISTAL CHAMPAGNE YOU PISSED THROUGH LIKE IT WAS WATER NOW, STUPID BITCH.

I feel no pity for her whatsoever. She made more money in a short time frame than most people will ever make off of crappy music many don't even consider to be a legit form of music, and wasted it away

As much surgery as she's had she should pretend to be someone else.

I'd be willing to bet she doesn't really owe the $1mil. It's unlikely she would file and not pay every year, so it probably means this is an IRS arbitrary assessment. When she files the real returns, the number will adjust downward.

Does this include money owed to California? If so, pay up. Sick and tired of all these "famous" people not paying their state taxes.

It is considered as a tax evasion. Jail time, anyone? It is not hard to pay $1m in taxes if she has a lot of money in the bank. Pay up, you gremlin looking bitch.

In response to comment #31. That has probably happened to her off and on over the 10 years. My guess is that she's missing filings, and the IRS is guessing at what she owes. She needs a better attorney to get her out of this.

She is a nobody who's records came out a decade ago, at least. She always spent way over her means and never paid her taxes. I see more jail time in store for this ho. I'm sure she is broke.

She doesn't need a lawyer... she needs an accountant

She is one of the rich that Obama wants to tax more. Sooo pay up honey! Your guy feels you can afford MORE MORE MORE so you should be honored to hand it over to redistribute your wealth. I don't understand why you are hiring lawyers and such just pay your government.

"hired professional attorneys to handle this matter"...

I would hope so. Those weekend lawyers can be such troublesome, with all of the paperwork and having to show up in court. They're not worth the trouble.

ALWAYS GO WITH "PROFESSIONAL" LAWYERS! You've been warned.

I'm glad to hear she hired a "professional attorney". This isn't the kind of case you want an hobbyist attorney to handle.

I'm glad she has hired "professional" attorneys. What would non-professional attorneys be? Wasn't aware that we had any other type?
