On That Lien: IRS Goes After Snoop Dogg Over $546k Tax Debt


(AllHipHop News) Whether Snoop Dogg is a Lion, Rastafarian or reincarnated, he is still Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. to the Internal Revenue Service.

On February 8th, the IRS hit Snoop D-O-double-G with a tax lien claiming the rapper owes $546,270.29 in unpaid back taxes according to documents obtained by TMZ.

The documents claim the “Gin & Juice” MC owes $101, 952.44 in unpaid taxes for 2009 and $444,317.85 in 2011. One possible reason for Snoop’s back rent could be him paying back another tax lien from the IRS back in 2011 for roughly $467,000 in back taxes dating back to 2008.

Forbes reports that Snoop Dogg raked in $14 million in 2011 and $11 million in 2009 while recently only pulling in $8 million in 2012. With a new documentary arriving on March 15th and his 12th studio album expecting a Spring release(with the DVD of the documentary) it looks like Snoop’s lucrative 2013 could partially go to Uncle Sam.

        LMAO

  • This some Willie lynch shet! You would be an idiot to think most rich fools dont forget about a property here, an investment there. Only, in hiphop are muhfuggas worried about oth people’s taxes. U think snoop dogg has a problem paying 500-600k to the IRS? Naw…they just wanna make it seem like he dodging them. Some sucka shet these days. Painting the black man to be ignorant, irresponsible, and whatever else. Ijs…it’s obvious. Don’t get me wrong some fools out there running from debts (fat joe/jd), but I’m sure that’s the case I. Every genre, class, etc….why in hiphop do they announce the IRS is hunting niggas?

      The media goes in on any celebrity in debt. Black or white. The Osbournes, Wesley Snipes, Sean Connery, Nas, etc. Let’s not talk about Nicholas Cage. Homey owes $14 mil.

      • The media doesn’t go after every celebrity that owes 500-600k…be honest that’s petty shet

      • brotha_man

        not petty with the intrest they throw on top of it

      • & then there are those penalties!

        500 racks is 500 racks!

        They wasn’t on the stage rapping with Snoop!

        >>Ashamed to admit it….but the new Snoop Lion is proper.

      • brotha_man

        cant mess wit snoop lion but I respect the hustle.

      • New track is better than anything he’s dropped since he left the Row, IMO

      • Chris

        If $500K was so petty, he should have just paid it in the first place. Snoop lost.

      • shieky24

        but you got it right

      • hoeyuno

        ..And Pamela Anderson. remember a few years ago she made the list a week later she went on a date with some east Indian prince and that was the end of the tax problem.

    • If Snoop Lion, Dog, or Cat doesn’t have a problem “paying 500-600k to the IRS”, then why allow it to hit the news before you realize that you have to pay? It’s not a race thing is more about being responsible, before you go making rain at the strip clubs.

        Cause the IRS has something we call employees, and employees have this thing where they leak information for money. So sometimes even before dudes accountants know about this, its already hit the streets.

      • Exactly

      • Rubbish, the information is publicly available.

        Leak? its not an album my brother.

        I don’t know about the states but breaching confidentiality is a crime in the UK. I would have thought the same applies in the states.

        I really can’t see the media reporting this if it was not publicly available it could lead to a hefty fine and prosecution if the information was leaked by a mole and published.

      • Product of Da Reagan Era

        You are right, it becomes public once the lien is filed.

  • InTheNightKitchen

    Wait, so he paid 2010’s taxes?

    • TimeWillTellu1

      Is there a pattern going on here? HAAHAHa

    Just pay your taxes every year is the lesson. Even if it’s late, just file your taxes. They always come back, especially when they see you start making more money
