Seems like funnyman Steve Harvey has an issue with the IRS that's no laughing matter. The IRS filed a $2,159,204 lien against his company Wonder Love, Inc.
Harvey's lawyer Ricky Anderson says the comedian was unaware of the lien and stated,
“He's certainly unable to give any comment. He's got competent tax counsel in Chicago that handles all of his tax affairs.”
Harvey himself commented to Black Voices stating,
"Even though I'm not allowed to say anything concerning this tax matter...my lawyers are addressing any and all matters, with the attention that this matter deserves.
My foundation work is my mission toward securing a brighter future for the young men in our communities...and with God's help that work will succeed.
I want to thank the well-wishers and fans for their support, and rest assured this is being handled professionally.”
As previously reported, Steve Harvey also recently struck a deal with BET to air his “Steve Harvey Show” on the network's new sister station Centric. Set to air later this year, Steve will offer relationship advice on the show and interview other entertainers and celebrities.
