IRS is about to take Nas’ publishing money. They filed documents in the state of Georgia to have his wages garnished — via the music publishing organizations BMI and ASCAP.
As we previously reported, IRS hit Nasir with a tax lien, tipping Nas’ damage bill past $6.46 million, according to public records.
Nas owes $3,860 in common charges on his Queens condo, according to this lien filed against him last fall by the condo managers. They claim Nas hasn’t paid the $420 monthly assessment since January 2010.
Nas owe the following:
* The IRS filed a $514,298 lien Jan. 10 with the New York City Register of Deeds.
* The IRS filed a $3,365,671 lien Feb. 3, 2010, in New York.
* The IRS filed a $2,584,236 lien Oct. 16, 2009, in New York.
The next time you buy a Nas album, you’re really just handing your money over to the government — because the rapper’s delinquent tax filings have caused Uncle Sam to begin garnishing his wages … TMZ has learned.
Nas is in tax debt up to his eyeballs — $6,000,000!
So the government has finally tired of waiting for Nas to pay up, so they filed documents in the state of Georgia to have his wages garnished — via the music publishing organizations BMI and ASCAP — until the debt is paid off.
So if you like Nas, but hate the government … perhaps you’ll want to find an alternative way to listen to his music. -TMZ
