The IRS has filed a second tax lien against the former Buffalo Bills football player, sportscaster and actor, whose career was destroyed when he was charged with the 1994 murder of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was acquitted in 1995 after a high-profile court case in which he was represented by a “dream team” of attorneys, but he lost a civil case in a wrongful death lawsuit brought by Goldman’s family in 1997.
He was later convicted in 2008 of robbing a sports memorabilia dealer at a Las Vegas hotel room with a group of associates and sentenced to 33 years in prison in Nevada.
The IRS initially filed a tax lien last year against Simpson’s home in Kendall, Fla., in the Miami area, for $179,437 in unpaid taxes from 2007 to 2010 (see IRS Files Tax Lien against O.J. Simpson). More recently, the IRS has filed a second tax lien against Simpson in Miami-Dade County for $17,015.99 in unpaid income taxes for 2011, according to GossipExtra. While Simpson earns next to nothing in prison, he is still receiving an NFL pension estimated at $19,000 per month.
