Gosselin Tax Lien: Jon Owes IRS $39,000!

January 10, 2013 11:43 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

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!

    Just because jon has some money problems, does not make Kate a more capable parent. She is still a nasty person and will always be. I feel so sorry for those kids.

    He should talk to the 36 federal workers who own $880+ in back taxes. Maybe they can give him some tips on how to fleece the government, i.e., other taxpayers.

    Jon is a jerk. I hope the interest and fees are substantial.

    He hated Kate for telling him what to do. She made him a millionaire. Now he is broke and should go to jail for not paying his taxes. He bought a BMW and a Mercedes after he moved out. He lived it up with many women. I do not feel sorry for him.

    Kate is the better parent just cause Jon owes money on his taxes?? That makes no sense at all!

    @Jan: I work for PENNDOT, and He doesn’t own a Mercedes nor a BMW. So explain why you would claim such a BLATENT LIE?

    I work for PENNDOT and according to our database records he owns one (1) HONDA. So why would you say something here, that is a blatent LIE?

    Looks like Kate sucked all the money he did not spend on the other women, for child support. Can you imangine 22,000.00 a month for 8 kids!!!! She really was socking it to him.. She probably needed it to pay for her BODY GUARD OR WAS IT HER B F.
    She should still think about the kids and remember that HE is their FATHER, you get what you sow… Some day the kids will BURN all her scrap books she has with pictures of HERSELF….. hope that comes true . HE did make some bad choices but so did she and she is still making them….
