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."

It's not like she was a one-hit wonder. She has platinum albums, and that Lady Marmalade record where she wrote that little rap is still getting checks. Money shouldn't be an issue when your worth millions, even for has-beens

PAY UP!!

WTF! I am SO SICK AND TIRED of all these celebrities NOT paying their taxes! The average citizens bust their A$$ES to pay their taxes and the ones raking in the dough are the ones that owe MILLIONS!!!!! Screw them! Start grabbing their assets and selling them off and see how fast they come up with the money! All they want to do is drug and drink and party!

Why is it that the IRS can make life hell for a regular person who doesn't pay taxes, yet some D-List celebrity owes $1 million and moseys along with zero repercussions? Nice equality, America.

She's probably spent that much on all of the surgeries she's had but can't pay Uncle Sam? NOPE. You CAN NOT pay Uncle Sam and think you're going to get away with it. She better work out a payment plan.

6 days ago I wrote the following comment about Jamal Anderson not paying his taxes: "Good grief - It seems like every day I read about another African American being sued for not paying his taxes - I'm not saying that White people pay their taxes all the time - but for being only 12% of the population, there should only be a 12% chance that the non-taxpayer is black. Instead it's like 80% of the time the non-taxpayer is black. Strange." In a week Jamal Abderson, Lil Kim and Sean Kingston have all been cited by the IRS for not paying their taxes.
Those "Occupy Wall Street" Protesters should be in front of every black sports or entertainment figure's home!
Why do such a high-percentage of black people fail to pay their fair share of taxes in America??!
