Vanessa Williams is the latest black celebrity to face IRS woes. The former Miss America was slapped with a tax lien from the Internal Revenue Service for nearly $370,000 in back taxes. Um, Vanessa, pay your taxes girl — look at Lauryn Hill and Wesley Snipes?
Here’s more from The Smoking Gun:
The 51-year-old performer is being dunned in connection with her 2011 personal tax return. The IRS is demanding $369,249.89 from Williams,according to a federal tax lien filed earlier this month.
The lien includes the address of a Manhattan-based accounting firm known for its representation of entertainers, including Williams, the former star of “Ugly Betty” and “Desperate Housewives.”
Williams, who lives in Chappaqua, a tony New York City suburb, was hit with the lien after failing to pay an IRS assessment that was issued in November 2012.
