Lionel Richie Tax
Lionel Richie isn't like us ... when he owes $1.1 MILLION in back taxes, he just pulls out his checkbook and pays.

The IRS slapped him with a tax lien back in 2012 ... for allegedly failing to pay more than $1M in income tax for 2010.

According to new docs obtained by TMZ ... the lien has been lifted and Richie is current.

Easy.

Lionel Richie is BLACK... of course he's not like you Harvey. If he doesn't pay he's the next Wesley Snipes. Truth.

Wonder how much the Kardashians/Jenners will owe when the IRS cracks down on that tax shelter/church that they all make regular deposits into.. could be connected to the funds they're allegedly hiding in offshore accounts. Can't wait to see that massive tax bill.

That's pocket change for him. I'm sure it was just a miscalculation on his account.

I just wanted to comment    

It bothers me when celebrities think they can get away with not paying taxes, but I can't fault Lionel. He took care of business.

I don't get how these famous rich people 'fail' to pay taxes, like it's not that they can't afford it.
