Nas

The Tax Man Cometh ...

For Rapper's Concert Cash

The State of Georgia is rooting for Nas to make a fortune on his concert tour ... because the government just got the green light to garnish a MILLION BUCKS from his earnings to repay a massive tax debt ... TMZ has learned. 

The Georgia Department of Revenue has filed new legal docs in their effort to collect $1,083,435 from the rapper for taxes it claims Nas owes for the years 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010. 

According to court docs, the GDR obtained an order commanding Live Nation -- the promo company behind Nas' tour with Lauryn Hill -- to garnish his wages until the dept is satisfied.

The tour is currently underway, and Nas -- who's also on the hook for millions in unpaid taxes to the federal government -- is sure to make a boatload of money.

A rep for Nas tells us the matter has recently been settled -- but the GDR insists the case is still open and they're trying to collect.

Pay your taxes, people.

A rep for Nas tells me that Nas has been approached by the disney channel to play a major role in the upcoming production of the next episode of planet of the apes. The role of Retardo, leader of a tribe of mentally deficient pygmy apes who cannot figure out how to use a mobile phone nor pay an income tax bill seems tailor made for Nas my sources tell me.

Why oh why do these people keep messing with Uncle Sam? Not only is there no way to win that battle, but Uncle Sam will beat you to within an inch of your life 100% percent of the time.

Nas should have consulted with Nicholas Cage first.

Just wait until nas has to pay the higher tax rate that he voted obama in for! nas will just add to his unpaid tax nut. I see these stories almost every day, I think B.P. try to get away with everything that they can, no matter how much money they make. Always trying to beat the system. A sorry bunch, they are.
