IRS Files Tax Lien Against Lil Wayne

The Young Money MC has a hefty debt to pay.

Published April 4, 2011

Lil Wayne has racked up a tax bill that isn't very little. The platinum-selling rapper has just been hit with a tax lien by the IRS in the amount of $5.6 Million.

This isn't the first time the IRS has filed a lien against Weezy. Last June, Uncle Sam filed a $1.13 million tax lien for income taxes owed for the years of 2004, 2005 and 2007. The $5.6 million dollar debt now includes taxes owed for the years 2008 and 2009. Wayne has until 2020 to refile the taxes.

Wayne, who is currently selling his mansion in Miami Beach for $12.9 Million, is reportedly bringing in big bucks on the I Am Music Tour. The rapper is also getting ready to release his highly-anticipated Tha Carter IV album.
