UPDATE: Dez Bryant promptly paid the balance in full after being notified of the lien in June 2015. The lien was then released in September 2015. According to Bryant’s attorney, it was an “oversight.”


Dallas Cowboys star receiver Dez Bryant has a shiny new $70M contract (thank Jay Z). Nevertheless, he owes the IRS $80,000 for taxes back in 2003. 

Reports TMZ Sports:

The IRS filed a federal tax lien against Bryant in Dallas … claiming he never paid $79,274.75 in income tax for the money he made back in 2013. 

Seems like chump change for Bryant now thanks to his new $70 million deal … but back in ’13, Dez only raked in a measly $1.8 mil, according to 

We’re guessing it’s just an oversight on Bryant’s part … but you don’t wanna play around when it comes to paying the tax man — just ask Wesley Snipes.

Surely the anti-Cowboys nation is getting a kick out of this.
