The Internal Revenue Service has filed a tax lien against actor Val Kilmer for nearly $500,000.

The IRS filed the tax lien last month against the actor, who starred in “The Doors” and “Top Gun,” according to the Associated Press. The lien for $498,165 in unpaid taxes from 2008 listed property that Kilmer has been trying to sell, including a ranch in New Mexico that is currently on the market for $18.5 million.

The asking price was knocked down at least twice, from $23 million last October and $33 million in 2009.

Kilmer has experienced tax problems in the past. The IRS filed a $538,858 tax lien against him in July 2009 in Bergen County, N.J. (see Nicolas Cage Hit with $6.2 Million Tax Lien). In Setember 2004, the New Mexico Court of Appeals ruled against Kilmer and his ex-wife, actress Joanne Whalley, in a dispute over a tax refund of more than $300,000 sought by the couple (see Actor Val Kilmer Loses Tax Case).
