Ruben Studdard

Giant Tax Lien ... Again

3/3/2012 2:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0303_Ruben-Studdard_tmz_exIt's never a good sign when a singer has had more tax liens than platinum albums -- but that's the situation former "American Idol" champ Ruben Studdard has found himself in ... TMZ has learned. 

According to docs filed in Alabama, Studdard and his estranged wife Zuri owe $180,216.73 in federal taxes for the year 2009. 

Studdard is no stranger to tax problems in Alabama -- he had a property lien filed against him back in 2008 to the tune of nearly $200,000. 

Ruben filed for divorce from Zuri back in November. 

Calls to Studdard's reps were not returned.

Wesley Snipes, Al Sharpton, this guy, hundreds of African American sports figures all seem to come from communities where they only vote for Democrat politicians who will promise them Billions in handouts from tax payers, and when they themselves finally make some decent money, they lack the understanding that those same handouts will have to come from their own pockets in the form of a tax bill. Now they think taxes are too high and that they should owe less. Nothing is free in this world......pay up guys. It`s what the Democrats want. When a Republican says he wants to cut these handouts, he/she is made out as a racist grandma killer. It`s a crazy cycle of ignorance.

I'm just SHOCKED that Ruben made enough in 2009 to actually owe $180K to the IRS.

Are people not allowed to have own opinions anymore no matter the subject? I usually never give a rats a$$ what these non-profit organizations or organizations for a "better world" think.

I would be likely to firmly propose that everybody that wants to use a tax relief firm to examine that business. It is better to be careful than sorry currently with an increasing number of businesses getting closed. Don’t come to be the following sucker. JK Harris, Roni Deutsch and Tax Masters surely have exploited men and women. ConsumerTaxReports.Org keeps these people answerable for their very own tax relief cons. http://www.Consumertaxreports.org Do your homework, you won’t wind up being sorry.

I am unable to stress enough just how immensely important it truly is that Americans making plans for hiring a tax relief company complete their researching first off. Plenty of businesses are actually wrapping up nowadays and folks are becoming stranded. You shouldn't be one of these! JK Harris, Roni Deutsch, and Tax Masters get almost all these persons because they keep showing up in the newspaper and TV, then they harm these folks! ConsumerTaxReports.Org really doesn't let all of the establishments along the lines of that escape with it again. Look at http://www.Consumertaxreports.org and do your homework in order that you don't end up just another victim.

There isn't a valid reason to seek constantly through the web for your tax professional when ConsumerTaxReports.Org did everything for your requirements. I truly urge everybody with tax issues to look into this great site and it's really important information. Considering the variety of outfits participating in underhanded trade tactics it can be harder to be aware of who exactly to put your trust in before you decide to use a specialist for aid. ConsumerTaxReports.Org keeps each and every outfit these people evaluate responsible for their own features, costs, staff members, an Internet-based standing. See the web page prior to signing with any firm. http://www.Consumertaxreports.org
