Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress has reportedly paid off a tax lien for $98,064.76 from the Internal Revenue Service.

The IRS filed the tax lien against the NFL player and his wife last year for unpaid taxes dating back to 2007 and 2009, according to TMZ. He was able to pay off the tax lien with the $925,000 he received after the Steelers decided to re-sign the player. Burress reportedly still owes $59,000 in unpaid taxes to New York State and $159,000 from a car accident lawsuit, according to TMZ.
