IRS to Sean Kingston:

You're Shorty on Your Taxes

2/5/2012 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It was back in '09 ... making money from his rhymes ... but sadly Sean Kingston didn't pay taxes on time ... this according to the IRS.

According to official documents obtained by TMZ, Kingston -- real name Kisean Anderson -- stiffed Uncle Sam to the tune of $131,379.51 for the money he made in 2009 ... the same year he released the album, "Tomorrow."

The feds warned the singer, "We have made a demand for payment” ... but since he failed to fork over the cash, the IRS obtained a lien on his property ... which means, if he doesn't pay up, the government can go after his stuff.

We’ve made repeated attempts to contact Sean’s reps for comment – but thus far, we’re getting the same treatment the IRS has gotten. A taxing effort with no results.

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 Anderson, 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??!

YOU FAT ONE HIT WONDER TARD OF LARD. Crawl back into your big fatso SUV because you obviously have one. Or be useless, take your Bieber friend, bulk him up. If a dude takes off his shirt and thinks he is sexy with little chicken arms and a little peewee chicken body, be useless, be a friend and go help Bieber to bulk up before he EVER takes off his shirt again. You are fat, you need to loose weight and go away somewhere far with the Kardoushian clan!

I thought it was just the picture that made him look like he had a two-point IQ. Now he proves it to everyone. What is UP with all the people who think they can just flake on taxes?
