“Crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, ranch dressing” aren’t just catchy lyrics from Mary J. Blige‘s last single to crack Billboard’s Top 40. They may be apart of her daily grind if she gets a part-time gig at Burger King in order to pay off her tax bill.
Uncle Sam has “understand estimate her intellgents” once again.
The IRS filed a federal tax lien against the Grammy winner, claiming she failed to pay all her income taxes for the years 2009 ($574,907.30), 2010 ($2,203,743.53) and 2011 ($647,604.60).
Tax bill grand total: $3,426,255.43. Translation: A LOT OF FREAKING MONEY.
Of course, the IRS needs to get in line … the State of NJ says MJB still owes $901,769.65 in back taxes. Blige is being sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan and her charity is facing a lawsuit that claims it took out a $250k loan and never paid it back.
