Actor Nicolas Cage is facing a whopping tax lien of $6,257,005 from the Internal Revenue Service.

The IRS filed the lien in a New Orleans district court on July 14, according to the Detroit News, listing Cage’s $3.55 million mansion in the Big Easy.

Cage has experienced previous difficulties with the IRS. Last September, he agreed to pay $666,000 plus interest after the IRS said he and his company had improperly deducted $3.3 million in personal expenses for limousines, meals, gifts and a Gulfstream jet between 2002 and 2004 (see Nicolas Cage Pays $666,000+ to Settle with IRS).

Cage is set to star later this year in the movie, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” with co-stars Val Kilmer and Vondie Curtis-Hall, both of whom have tax problems of their own, the Detroit News pointed out. The IRS filed a $538,858 tax lien against Kilmer on July 15 in Bergen County, N.J. Curtis-Hall and his production company are facing a total of $357,117 in various tax liens filed by the IRS and the state of California.
