The IRS had previously filed tax liens against the movie and TV star for unpaid tax debts of $233,904 for 2010 and 2011 (see IRS Files Tax Lien against Lindsay Lohan and IRS Slaps Lindsay Lohan with Another Tax Lien). Her friend, actor Charlie Sheen, recently paid $100,000 of her tax debts after they talked about her financial problems on the set of Scary Movie 5 (see Charlie Sheen Pays $100,000 of Lindsay Lohan’s Tax Debts). However, according to TMZ, Lohan also owes taxes for 2011, and the IRS has run out of patience.
Lohan is reportedly trying to raise money to pay off the rest of her tax debts so she can regain control of her bank accounts. The troubled actress has been in and out of rehab in recent years and was arrested last week for allegedly punching a fortuneteller at a New York nightclub after accusing the woman of stealing her purse.
Her latest release is the Lifetime TV movie Liz & Dick, in which she plays the late actress Elizabeth Taylor.
