No matter how much money the rich and famous make, it seems as if paying taxes is always an issue for some of them. We can add a particular reality star who has referred to herself as a "very rich b***h" in the past, to that list.
Nene Leakes, well known for her appearances on the show Real Housewives of Atlanta, is having tax issues that won't be going away anytime soon. She was hit with a tax lien from the State of Georgia back on September 22 in the amount of $95,232.92. And this isn't the first tax lien she has been handed this year. She also was hit with a tax lien from the State of California for $86,624 back on June 2.
These tax liens are in addition to federal back taxes she has had looming over her head for a while now, which total $824,000. In total, this means that Nene owes over one million dollars in taxes!
The crazy part about Nene's latest tax lien is that the 48-year-old could have saved a lot of money had she just taken care of the situation earlier. According to sources, the original amount of the lien was $58,458, but the amount increased by nearly $37,000 due to the interest that totaled $9,715.71, penalties that totaled $15,317.61 and fees that totaled $11,691.60!
And Leakes won't be paying those taxes off with money from TRHOA either. She reportedly declined a $2.5 million offer to return for the 9th season of the show! But that doesn't mean that she'll be begging for money. Leakes is an author, has her own clothing line on HSN, and is on the ABC game show To Tell The Truth, which was renewed for a second season.
Hopefully she can get these tax issues all settled in the near future.
