Tamar Braxton may not be a cast member on any of the Real Housewives series, but her husband’s current legal issues reminds us a bit of the Braxton Family Values star’s reality TV counterparts. Apparently, Vincenet Herbert owes well over $3 million in taxes — how will he get himself out of this mess?
Looks like there’s trouble in paradise for Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert. No, unlike the vast majority of today’s reality television couples, the two are still in the midst of a reasonably stable marriage. Hopefully, for Tamar’s sake, that relationship can stand the strain of financial drama, for it looks like plenty of it is about to unfold.
According to IRS documents obtained by Radar Online, Vincent owes a whopping $3,325,107.70 in federal taxes. This includes $66,315.30 left unpaid in 2010, $2,267,845.97 in 2011 and another $990,946.43 for 2013. The IRS is finally on Vince’s case, demanding he pay up or face the consequences.
This is all particularly interesting in light of a huge piece of advice Tamar shared in 2011: pay your damn taxes! At that time, she explained to Black Enterprise, “I don’t understand when people say, ‘I owe $100,000 in taxes.’ Or, ‘I owe $8 million in back taxes.’ What? How that work?! Pay your taxes and keep the IRS off your behind!”
Unfortunately for Tamar, it looks like her husband failed to abide by those words of wisdom. Now, it’s time for the songwriter and record producer to pay up!
