Before Swizz Beatz takes Alicia Keys' hand in marriage, the producer must pay a visit to the IRS first.

Public documents are showing that the music producer has been hit with a lien from the IRS on $652,727 worth of unpaid taxes from 2008. Swizz (born Kasseem Dean) was slapped with the lien on June 3.

Dean has had several other liens filed against him and his ex-wife, Mashonda in California, Georgia and New York. The former couple's debt currently stands around the $2.2 million mark.

Swizz's legal reps said of the lien, "We have been discussing the issue with the government for years and are currently negotiating an amicable resolution of the dispute."
