Actor Robert Redford has filed a lawsuit against the state of New York for billing him $1.6 million in taxes related to the sale of the Sundance Channel, claiming he already paid taxes to the state of Utah.

Redford sold part of his share of the cable TV channel in 2005. New York State’s Department of Taxation and Finance claims he owes a total of $1,568,470 for that tax year, which includes $845,066 in unpaid taxes and $727,404 in interest. However, Redford sued, saying he already paid taxes in Utah, according to Courthouse News Service.
