The IRS has filed a $258,017 tax lien against Redskins wideout Santana Moss.
The lien comes as a result of more than $250k in taxes the 11-year NFL veteran neglected to pay back in 2006, despite his earning more than $1.9 million that year.
The Detroit News reports that the tax lien was filed against Moss’s $5.2 million Florida home on November 22nd in Broward County Circuit Court.
The tax lien isn’t the first financial hardship that Moss has faced in 2011; he was sued for $308,870.64 in back rent by a Florida businessman earlier this year.
Settling these liabilitys shouldn’t be too much of a problem for the 32-year-old wide receiver, though, as he is reportedly earning $2.5 million (including bonuses) this season.
Also being sought by the IRS for back taxes is MLB first baseman Albert Pujols, who has made headlines recently for signing a 10-year, $250 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim). The Missouri Department of Revenue filed two tax liens against Pujols that combine for a measly total of $729.94.
