MC Hammer Reportedly Still Owes IRS $800,000

(AllHipHop News) The well documented financial troubles of MC Hammer apparently are not over. TMZ reports the “U Can’t Touch This” performer and his wife still owe the IRS $798,033 in taxes from 1996 and 1997, and the government is seeking to garnish any profits from Hammer’s LLC to pay off the debt.

Hammer’s tax issues first became public in 2011, but the Oakland native claimed to have paid off the back taxes tweeting at the time, “700k … Don’t get too excited .. I paid them already and kept my receipt. Stamped by a US Federal Judge.” He took to Twitter again to address the recent reports.

The entertainer born Stanley Burrell famously had to file for bankruptcy in 1996 after amassing an estimated $33 million dollar net worth. Hammer has since gone on to make appearances on television shows like I Married… and The Surreal Life. His most recent music releases include the Jay Z response track “Better Run Run” in 2010.
