EXCLUSIVE: Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes – Drops $824k To Settle Massive Tax Debt With IRS
The Dirty can exclusively reveal Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes has dropped $824k to settle her massive debt with Uncle Sam over unpaid taxes … with the IRS heading to court releasing the lien they hit the reality star with last year.
Back in July, the reality star was hit with a Federal Tax lien filed by the IRS in Georgia Court. The lien explains NeNe – real name Linnethia Monique Leakes – refused to pay up on $824,366.01 in back taxes for the year 2014. The IRS explained if NeNe doesn’t cough up the entire debt soon … they will begin the process of seizing her assets and property to collect on their money.
NeNe had a busy 2014 with many projects including the 18th season of Dancing with The Stars (where she placed 7th), announced the launch of her Home Shopping Network collection and made her debut on Broadway in ‘Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella’.
The reality star clearly didn’t want to mess with the Federal Government because according to newly filed records she has settled the massive debt with IRS. The IRS filed docs in Georgia on January 17th explaining they are releasing the lien against NeNe … due to her paying every last dime of the past due tax bill.
The release of the $824k lien is the first step in handing recent financial issues for the star … with the State of California hitting her with a separate State Tax Lien last year for $86,624 in unpaid taxes.
