IRS to Mathew Knowles: Can You Pay Your Bills?

IRS to Mathew Knowles: Can You Pay Your Bills?

Beyoncé's daddy owes the feds more than $1 million.

Published October 27, 2015

While Mathew Knowles is making his rounds promoting his new "Beyoncé Bootcamp" seminars, he apparently forgot to follow one major lesson: pay your taxes. According to TMZ, the IRS slapped him with a fat $200,000 tax lien.


Knowles apparently was wrapped up in teaching "Superstar 101" in 2013, and while his efforts were pretty lucrative, he failed to give Uncle Sam his piece of the pie.

What's even worse is Bey's dad has a history of failing to pay the U.S. government, as of 2013, the IRS was after him for owing over $1.2 million. With the added sum of this recent report, the grand total has now been upped to $1.4 million.

Perhaps papa Knowles should take a break from the seminars and take a course on financial literacy?
