EXCLUSIVE

Don't ever say Charlie Sheen's not the charitable type -- because he recently cut Lindsay Lohan a $100,000 check to cover the actress' six-figure tax bill ... all out of the goodness of his heart ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us she and Charlie became close pals while on the set of "Scary Movie 5" back in September -- spending a lot of time together both on and off the set.

During their bonding period, we're told Lindsay and Charlie talked about everything -- and at one point, Lindsay mentioned her ongoing tax problems.

We're told Charlie offered to cut her a check then and there to get the IRS off her tail, but Lindsay refused.

Fast forward to last week -- sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, Lindsay's biz manager received a check from Charlie for $100,000.

We're told Lindsay was blown away by Charlie's generosity -- and immediately applied the money to her outstanding tax bill.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay allegedly owed Uncle Sam $233,904 in unpaid taxes for 2009 and 2010 -- but thanks to Charlie, that number's nearly been cut in half.

As we reported, Lindsay's slated to earn over $2 MILLION by the end of this year -- but who knows where that's going.

I doubt she was blown by his generosity.

I have no doubt he was blown by her.

$87 of the 100K will be considered taxable income to Ms. Lohan. I can already see the IRS agents now; licking their chops.

I just figured who could have replaced Sheen on 2.5 Men show. Kevin Dillon would have been the perfect replacement (watch him in How to be a gentlemen).

Charlie made so much on TV he could find a hundred grand in his couch.
Is she now elevated to "goddess" status?

She spends a lot of money on cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, and expensive food.

Isn't that sweet- the low self-esteem, substance abusing, bitter bimbo duo of Jill666 and Crazy Susan are riding the "Story for hits." pony again. Isn't it amazing how it's only stories about Milo and Negative stories that are only for hits.

Gotta love hypocrisy.

Story must be true- Jill666 and Crazy Susan are spinning like tops trying to convince us it isn't. Newsflash you bitter bimbo- nothing you say is even remotely credible or believable.

The IRS is not a fast moving organization but it is a sure moving organization. They will let you stay out of jail if you are making payments towards what you owe them. Who knows if she's doing that or not but if she is not, she will go to jail eventually. The Feds are not impressed by celebs, just ask Wesley Snipes. They will give people chances but they are ruthless in their pursuit of money owed and I personally don't have a lot of sympathy with anyone who doesn't pay their taxes. I pay mine even though I could live a more opulent lifestyle if I didn't. The Lohan cow goes out every freaking night and goes on shopping sprees every freaking day so she's either living beyond her means or she's flush with cash as her supoporters insist. She either has the wherewithal to settle her debt immediately or she needs to adjust her spending habits according to her income, as the vast majority of Americans must also do.

The only remaining lie from Lindsay is that she is a good actor.
Guess tonight will expose that one.
Wonder what she will do to stay in the news after tonight.

NO, they didn't drink tiger blood or do coke all night long together. No way. I don't believe it.
