Actor Chris Tucker has been sued by Internal Revenue Service, and is facing a legal battle in court with the Service.
As per court documents, the IRS has documented a claim against the ‘Rush Hour’ actor, asserting that he owes roughly $9.6 million in back taxes, penalties and interest.
The claim relates to accounts tracing all the way back to 2002 when Tucker was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
The documents additionally express that Tucker made an effort to pay off his debts multiple times through month to month installment arrangements, but were ultimately fruitless for some reasons.
The claim affirms that in four separate years, Tucker reported and paid essentially short of what he actually owed.
In 2002, the IRS claims Tucker owed around $4.6 million, and that he just paid $2.4 million. In 2006, the IRS said he reported and paid $1.18 million, but owed more than $2.18 million; and afterward in 2008, he just paid $127,169 out of $2.4 million he owed. As per the cases by IRS, Chris Tucker owed $481,552 and just paid $4,642 in 2010.
The IRS says, the grand total of what Tucker supposedly owes in back taxes comes in at $9,684,452.07.
The documents by the outfit express that, Despite notice and demand for payment of the assessments set forth above, Mr. Tucker has neglected, refused, or failed to fully pay the assessments against him.”
Moreover, the IRS states that the total owed could continue to increase, explaining, “Since the dates of assessment described above, interest, penalties, and statutory additions have accrued and will continue to accrue as provided by law.”
