Snoop Dogg

$546k Tax Lien Dropped

... Like It's Hot

Snoop Dogg
could have bought (and munched on) 153,000 Big Macs ... 289,000 Chalupas ... or 500,000 bags of Cheetos ... but instead he chose to pay off his tax bill, all $546,000 of it!!!

TMZ broke the story ... the IRS slapped Snoop (now Lion) -- real name Calvin Broadus -- with a massive tax lien​ back in February, claiming he still owed back taxes for the years 2009 and 2011.

Not one to leave Uncle Sam hanging ... Snoop recently paid his debt in full -- $546,270.29 to be exact -- and the lien was released late last month.

Now he can get back to doing what he does best.

Best to pay up and not end up like old Wesley Snipes. That foo is still dealing with the IRS from a halfway house.

Good Snoop. Now stay on top of your taxes. Most of that was probably interest and late fees

I'm sure it's a relief to put behind him rather than joining the "Dummy Brigade" aka Snipes and the newest member Lauren Hill who thought they could dodge the IRS.

He didn't pay it to honour uncle sam, you idiot, he paid it because he knows that when you owe money to the government mafia, they would put his ass in jail faster than if he killed 10 babies.

$546,000 is a lot to owe in back taxes! I'm sure anyone who owed that much would be threatened with jail if he or she couldn't or wouldn't pay. At the very least, they would have a lien placed on their property, so nobody is just picking on Snoop. However, kudos go to him for being honest and smart enough to pay it all off. He will no doubt reap beau coup rewards in good publicity for it.
