Chris Tucker, who co-starred with Jackie Chan in the hit Rush Hour movies, is facing tax liens from the Internal Revenue Service totaling more than $11.5 million.

The IRS filed tax lien documents against the 37-year-old actor and comedian with the L.A. County Recorder’s Office on Tuesday for $4,007,794.34 for tax year 2001, $5,060,074.23 for 2002, $55,544.84 for 2004, $660,414.94 for 2005, and $1,788,080.91 for 2006 — a total of $11,571,909.26, according to TMZ.

The State of California filed its own tax lien against Tucker last year for $3.5 million. The actor reportedly received $20 million for Rush Hour 2 in 2001 and $25 million for Rush Hour 3 in 2007, but that was his last film or TV credit.
