Chris Tucker owes 11 million in back taxes
Actor/Comedian Chris Tucker faces 11 million problems in taxes.
The Rush Hour star is reportedly in a bind after the Internal Revenue Service filed documents at the L.A. County Recorder’s Office showing that he had a lot of back taxes. Celebrity news source TMZ.com has featured Tucker owing: “$11,571,909.26 in federal taxes for the years 2001, 2002 and 2004 through 2006.”
His debt was gained after he had scored a paycheck worth $20,000,000 for his film Rush Hour 2 in 2001 and a $25,000,000 for the third installment of Rush Hour in 2007.
According to TMZ, this is the second time that Tucker got in trouble for not paying his taxes. The State of California had also filed a lien against Tucker last June 24 for not paying his state taxes that amount to $3 million.
