Internal Revenue Service Slaps Actress Vanessa Williams With Six-Figure Tax Lien
The Internal Revenue Service has socked actress and ex-Miss America Vanessa Williams with a nearly $370,000 lien for unpaid taxes.
The 51-year-old performer is being dunned in connection with her 2011 personal tax return. The IRS is demanding $369,249.89 from Williams, according to a federal tax lien filed earlier this month.
The lien includes the address of a Manhattan-based accounting firm known for its representation of entertainers, including Williams, the former star of “Ugly Betty” and “Desperate Housewives.”
Williams, who lives in Chappaqua, a tony New York City suburb, was hit with the lien after failing to pay an IRS assessment that was issued in November 2012.
