Beyonce's Dad

Slapped w/ $1.2 MILLION

Tax Bill, Bill, Bill

5/13/2013 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0510-matthew-knowles-gettyThe Good News: Beyonce's dad, Mathew Knowles, raked in BOATLOADS of cash during the years he managed B's career ... we're talkin' millions.

The Bad News: The IRS says he still owes all sorts of taxes on some of that income -- over $1.2 MILLION.

Uncle Sam just filed a ridiculously large lien against Knowles, claiming he needs to cough up some cash from the years 2010 ($485,575.95) and 2011 ($728,004.89) ... all totaled, $1,213,580.84.

It's no wonder the bill is so high ... Beyonce is arguably one of the highest grossing musical talents OF ALL TIME -- and during the years 2010 and part of 2011 MK was still managing her career. Not to mention his slew of other projects, including his own record label.

Seriously, when your tax bill is over a million ... you're pretty rich.

Taxes are for the little people. Mr Knowles has friends in high places he will be just fine.

I'm so sick and tired of the very rich and the very poor riding on the backs of hardworking people. My husband and I pay our taxes not because we want to but because that is a requirement of citizenship here in the good old U.S.of A. I'm really tired of footing the bill. PAY THE EFF UP!

Arguably one of the highest grossing of all time? Doesn't have to be an argument if you do your research TMZ. Stop being lazy. I doubt she's even in the to 20.
