Today, April 15, 2015, is the deadline for filing federal income tax return and that deadline has been intact for years. Apparently Tax Day means nothing to Nas because he’s being accused of owing hundreds of thousands to the IRS but is refusing to pay.
The Jasmine Brand is reporting that the 41-year-old Hip-Hop legend the Georgia Department of Revenue a total of $276,439.80 in unpaid state taxes since 2006. Since a 2009 lien did nothing to rattle the Illmatic star into parting ways with his pennies, the Department of Revenue is looking to seize any assets that they can to collect their pay.
Even without releasing an album in nearly three years, the rapper born Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones has been very active on the scene. He spent much of 2014 celebrating the 20th anniversary of his aforementioned debut album, including a re-release and a nationwide tour to promote a documentary associated with it.
But like a true slickster, documents filed in Georgia on April 3 have concluded that the Department of Revenue’s investigation on Nas have come up empty as they have found no property of assets to seize. That doesn’t mean the Nas unpaid taxes soap opera is over; the Department of Revenue is looking for other means to unlock their swag.
They call him Nas, he’s not your legal type of fellow.
