It looks like Keith Sweat is the latest celebrity who needs to pay Uncle Sam a large lump sum of money. The government hit the chart-topping artist with a tax lien in the amount of $35,147.66.
The documents filed by the I.R.S. on November 26 claim Sweat is being charged for back taxes that weren’t paid in 2014. Reportedly, if he doesn’t start paying up soon, the government will seize his property and assets, which might include meaningful items from his three-decade career.
Just last year, the songwriter celebrated the 30th anniversary of his debut album, Make It Last Forever, and the 10th anniversary of his top-ranked, syndicated radio show The Sweat Hotel. Most recently, Keith put 24-year-old singer Jacquees in his place after he tried to crown himself the “King of R&B.” The “Twisted” singer said, “I’m still getting that bag, I don’t know what he’s talking about.”
Well hopefully, he has enough bags to pay off those back taxes!
TELL US: Do you think he’ll pay it off soon?
