Bubba Sparxxx

Ugly Tax Lien

0622_bubba_sparxxxBubba Sparxxx once rapped, "I ain't choose to rhyme, rhymin' chose me" -- now you can add "paying his taxes" to the list of things Bubba has chosen not to do ... TMZ has learned.

According to documents filed in Georgia, the former Timbaland protege -- whose biggest song, "Ugly," came out in 2001 -- owes $29,266.88 in back taxes from the year 2006. It was originally only about $15k ... but interest and fees have nearly doubled his debt.

The State of Georgia is now garnishing Bubba's wages through BMI, a music company that dishes out royalties to artists. From March through May of this year, the state has already grabbed $3,622.45 ... which represents all the money Bubba was owed by BMI.

Sounds like Georgia is in it for the long haul.

Calls to Bubba's rep have not been returned.

I don't know who he is... why can't celebrities pay their taxes... we all they have the money. Are their highly paid accountant just not telling them how the world works or do they really just not think they have to do it. I don't get it.

Actually, Ugly was Sparxxx's 1st hit. His biggest hit was Ms New Booty featuring Ying Yang Twins.

I don't understand the problem. Thousands of people owe taxes, and find a way to take care of this issue. As an example, here is a website with many successful tax resolution agreements accepted by Georgia Department of Revenue: http://www.2020taxdebthelp.com/tax-resolution-state-GA.php
