Oops, I Made a $339k Mistake

2/15/2012 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nas is great at a lot of things ... rapping, feuding ... but paying taxes isn't one of them ... and now he's on the hook for another $339,000 he allegedly kept from Uncle Sam.

According to official documents obtained by TMZ, Nas never forked over $339,005.49 in federal income tax he owed for 2010 ... and now the U.S. government has obtained a lien on his property.

Being a tax scofflaw is nothing new for Nas ... according to public records, dude is also on the hook for more than $6 MILLION DOLLARS in back taxes from previous years.

We called Nas for comment -- so far, no response.

That dude has a slum mentality. You make babies and the government picks up the tab, free lunch, free health care, , free food, free utilities, free housing, free loader. In his mind, taxes are for idiots that play by the rules. Well, you're busted Idiot!!!! Your dumb ass in the hole at the tune of over 6,000,000. You may have stiff those folks in Angola, but you're not going to stiff Uncle Sam... but if Einstein had it right---definition of crazy---you've learned nothing and will continue to try 1o screw the system... until they lock your skanky ass up for a few years.

You should be in jail for not paying taxes, especially that kinda amount. You wont get away with it, they will find you.
It is people like you that ruin it for everybody else.

Nas has no soul. The Alloccos are still stuck in Angola because he was a no show for a gig and doesn't want to pay back the money.

During the past 2 weeks, Jamal Anderson, Lil Kim and Sean Kingston have all been cited by the IRS for not paying their taxes. And now Nas.
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??!

If he's part of that 5500 this is so embarrassing. Hopefully that just includes people who didn't pay due to loop holes cause then there's a lot more unaccounted for taxes out there. Hope so the country could use the funds. X & O
