Kate Gosselin has had a tough time of it lately, what with losing her coupon blogging gig and getting into a legal battle with author Robert Hoffman. But it looks like former hubby Jon Gosselin is about to join the reality mom in the land of post-stardom troubles, for the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star was recently hit with a hefty tax lien.
Jon Gosselin hasn’t been doing a very good job of paying his taxes. Papers filed in Berks County, Pennsylvania indicate that the former reality star owes $39,000 from 2009, the year in which he and Kate split up and likely the last time he’s had a regular income. Although Jon has since made a fair amount of money off of interviews, he seems to have failed to put some of it away to take care of his IRS obligations. Oops.
So far, multiple news outlets have attempted to reach Jon for confirmation of his tax debt…but to no avail. Kate Gosselin is also silent on the topic thus far, instead choosing to fill her Twitter page with reports of yogurt making and, “Fixing lights, towel racks, light switches, &other household ‘to do’s’..well, I’m assisting&learning and happy to cross things off the list!”
Hopefully, for his own sake, Jon Gosselin managed to put away at least a little of the massive salary he generated while appearing on Jon & Kate Plus 8. But we wouldn’t be at all surprised if his savings amounted to, well, zilch. Goes to show, just when you think Kate Gosselin is looking like a rather incapable parent…her ex-husband makes it clear that he is every bit as bad. Gotta feel sorry for those kids!
