0830_pete-rose_gettyStop us if you've heard this one before: Pete Rose has more tax problems!!

TMZ has learned the MLB legend has just been hit with ANOTHER tax lien ... this time the State of California has come-a-callin' for $15,520.86 in unpaid taxes for 2010 and 2011.

Rose's tax problems are legendary -- just last year, the federal government smacked Pete with a tax bill of $120k for 2009 and 2010.

And before that, Pete racked up a $973k debt with Uncle Sam for stiffing the govt. from 1997 to 2002, though he ultimately paid off that debt.

As for the new lien, sources close to Pete tell us he's aware of the situation and plans to pay in full.

What is it about Americans that they just don't pay their taxes?

EVERYONE owes the tax man. Only in America do you have to pay taxes on income that was taxed when you earned it and taxed every time you spend it while forever paying taxes on a home you already paid taxes on because you really don't own a home and taxes that serve as eternal rent to government prevent you from ever owning it clear and whole.

and you go to jail if you don't, even though the Constitution outlaws debtor's prison. "Land of the free" my ass.

This guy is a liar, cheater and deserves two lifetime bans, for gambling on his own team while he was the combination player-manager, a really sweet position for a degenerate gambler.
Btw, he has sources close to him? This f'ing loser has people?
