The Internal Revenue Service has hit Michael Lohan, father of actress Lindsay Lohan, with a $12,429 tax lien.

The IRS filed the lien against Lohan, 49, on January 29 with the Suffolk County, N.Y., clerk. Lohan told the Detroit News that he was in prison for some of the tax years for which the IRS said he is delinquent. He claimed to have filed a tax extension to request extra time to collect the information to prepare his taxes, and that his lawyers are looking into the matter.

Lohan was in prison in the 1990s on contempt of court charges, and he served a two-and-a-half-year sentence for drunk driving and attempted assault more recently, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. His daughter Lindsay has also been in legal trouble and was sued for hijacking a car with three passengers inside and using it to chase down another car while intoxicated in July 2007. The 23-year-old actress also reportedly owes $600,000 in credit card debt.
