Steven Seagal

Not Above the Law ...

He's a Massive Tax Debtor

EXCLUSIVE

0824_steven_segal_01Taking out a boatful of terrorists hell-bent on nuking Honolulu does not mean you can skip out on paying your taxes ... so the State of California has filed a giant tax lien against action film star Steven Seagal, TMZ has learned. 

According to documents filed with the Los Angeles County Recorder's Office, Seagal owes the Golden State a whopping $335,606.35 for the year 2010.

It's hard to imagine how Seagal amassed such a large tax bill -- he has appeared in mostly direct-to-video movies for the past decade, with his only real work being a small role in "Machete" in 2010 and his reality show, "Steven Seagal: Lawman."

Calls to Seagal were not returned.
