Ja Rule Reportedly Owes Over $360,000 in Back Taxes
According to Bossip, the former Murder Inc. rapper was hit with a tax lien last month for a total of $363,269 for income earned between 2014 and 2015.
However, the IRS apparently has filed multiple liens against Ja Rule for not paying his taxes for over a decade.
It started in 2013 when the IRS claimed that Ja Rule owed $1.7 million for nonpayment of taxes from 2004 through 2008. Then in 2015, the IRS claimed that the rapper didn't pay $92,728 in back taxes for the year 2012. In that same year, the feds said Ja failed to pay an additional $89,913 in outstanding tax debt for the tax year 2013.
According to Bossip, there are no documents to prove that 42-year-old rapper has paid any of the aforementioned tax bills.
Reps for Ja Rule had no comment on the matter.
