As if there wasn’t enough trouble brewing in Lindsay Lohan’s life, things just took another turn for the worse. The Punk’d star is in deep water with the IRS because of debt. And even though Charlie Sheen gave the troubled actress $100,000 to help cover her tax debt, it wasn’t enough. The IRS has seized her bank accounts in an effort to get to the bottom of the mess and recover funds owed.
According to the New York Post, Sheen’s generous gift of $100,000 to Lohan didn’t come close to paying off her debt to the IRS. Her financial mess goes back at least three years; she owes back taxes for 2009, 2010, and 2011, which total in excess of $233,904.
Just like with any other taxpayer who’s in behind and in trouble, the IRS tried to work with Lohan and gave her plenty of time to rectify the situation but her time has ran out and rightly so considering she’s earned more than $2 million this year alone and still hasn’t paid the bill.
Left with no other choice, the IRS seized her bank accounts. This news comes on top of reports that Lohan punched psychic Tiffany Ava Mitchell in the face at a New York City nightclub after she offered the Lohan a free reading. Lohan was subsequently arrested and taken to jail where she was issued with a desk appearance ticket. She will have to appear in court on January 7 to face misdemeanor assault charges.
Plus, the same day she was arrested for punching Mitchell in the face, Lohan was hit with three misdemeanor charges stemming from an accident that took place in June where she plowed a Porsche into the back of a dump truck. Following the accident, she and her assistant were taken to the hospital where Lohan denied being behind the wheel at the time of the accident but thanks to her assistant and witnesses on the scene, police have been able to determine that Lohan lied. The charges against her for that incident include “obstructing or resisting a police officer, providing false information to a police officer, and reckless driving.”
What a mess! Do you think Lindsay will ever get her life together? Post a comment and tell us what you think!
