According to reports, the government is aiming to get the $6 millie Nas owes them courtesy of his publishing.
The next time you buy a Nas album, you’re really just handing your money over to the government — because the rapper’s delinquent tax filings have caused Uncle Sam to begin garnishing his wages … TMZ has learned. As TMZ first reported, Nas is in tax debt up to his eyeballs … if you his eyeballs were $6,000,000 tall. So the government has finally tired of waiting for Nas to pay up, so they filed documents in the state of Georgia to have his wages garnished — via the music publishing organizations BMI and ASCAP — until the debt is paid off. So if you like Nas, but hate the government … perhaps you’ll want to find an alternative way to listen to his music.
A month ago, reports emerged online showing the rapper’s tax woes.
Nas is great at a lot of things … rapping, feuding … but paying taxes isn’t one of them … and now he’s on the hook for another $339,000 he allegedly kept from Uncle Sam. According to official documents obtained by TMZ, Nas never forked over $339,005.49 in federal income tax he owed for 2010 … and now the U.S. government has obtained a lien on his property. Being a tax scofflaw is nothing new for Nas … according to public records, dude is also on the hook for more than $6 MILLION DOLLARS in back taxes from previous years. We called Nas for comment — so far, no response.
