The Struggle Files: Katt Williams Faces $4 Million Tax Lien
Katt Williams likes to slap Target employees, throw cigarettes at women, and fight other comedians, but he might not want to go up against Uncle Sam.
The troubled comedian has been hit with a tax lien, of just over$4 million.
Uncle Sam filed the lien against Williams, claiming the comedian failed to pay $3.2 million in taxes in 2008 … and also bailed on another $829,352 in 2009.
It’s not the first time Williams has been accused of stiffing the Feds — back in 2010 the IRS filed another tax lien against the comedian totaling $284,000 … mere pennies compared to the new bill.
The Ohio native’s net worth is estimated at $4.5 million, and when he’s not leading cops on three-wheeler chases, and breaking a bottle over someone’s heads (allegedly), his comedy act is noteworthy. He set out on tour in the fall, but has skipped out on many of the dates.
Last month he announced his retirement, only to change his mind. “The reason why he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all things that happened to him in the city of Seattle,” his rep said. “He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans outstanding shows from this point forward.”
Williams is set to appear in Scary Movie 5, due out next year.
