The IRS accuses the 48-year-old reality star of refusing to pay a total almost $830k in back taxes for the year 2014, and are threatening to seize her assets unless she pays up!
Leakes, whose real name is Linnethia Monique Leakes, was recently hit with a Federal Tax Lien in Georgia court.
On July 22, 2016, the IRS filed a tax lien for a total of $824,366.01 in back taxes for the year 2014.
For the record, 2014 was a big year for Leakes. In addition to being the highest paid reality star on air that year, she appeared on the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars, launched her ‘NeNe Leakes Collection’ on the HSN, and in made her Broadway debut in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
Needless to say, she earned several pretty hefty ‘Trump Checks’ that year, but she neglected to give the IRS their cut.
Meanwhile, Leakes dropped $2million on a brand new six-bedroom, six-bathroom, 9,511sq ft family mansion in Deluth, Georgia.
Leakes is currently touring with her comedy show and focusing on several other ventures including her HSN line and network game show appearances, While she’s said that she won’t be a featured player during season 9 of RHOA, I’m sure we’ll see her in some capacity.
