Omarion Owes IRS Over $110,000 in Unpaid Taxes
Back in May, the IRS filed a $35,210 lien in Orange County against the R&B crooner, a $25,660 lien in October 2009, and a $49,715 filed in the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds in August of 2009. Omarion apparently failed to pay income taxes in 2003, 2005 and 2006. He also filed for bankruptcy in January but the case was later dismissed.
Luckily, Omarion’s tax woes put him in good company among celebrities who owe Uncle Sam. Snoop Dogg, Tony Braxton, Nas and Young Buck have all found themselves in trouble for not paying their taxes. As previously reported Buck owes the IRS over $300,000 and will have his belongings auctioned off later this month to pay down the debt.
Although he gained notoriety as the former frontman, of the now defunct R&B group B2K, Omarion has since gone on to start a solo career. He dropped his third solo album ‘Ollusion,’ in January, which failed to live up to the sales standards set by his previous releases. ‘Ollusion’ debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard charts, selling only 21,200 copies in its first week.
