Lil Wayne Pays Off $14 Million Tax Debt

Lil Wayne has one less (massive) bill to pay now that it’s being reported that he’s forked over $14 million to the United States government.

Lil Wayne continued to be under scrutiny with tax authorities due to unpaid taxes, causing him to be, on multiple occasions, hit with tax liens.

In February 2011, Wayne paid off a $1.13 million tax lien and later on the year he was hit with another lien, this time for $5.6 million.

By 2012, the rapper paid $7 million to the IRS to get them off of his back, but in 2016, it was reported that he owed them $900,0

It’s understood the rapper must have cleared off the massive debt from the settlement money he received from Birdman last year when the two settled their years-long legal battle over his record deal.

At that time, Wayne who accused his label of owing him tens of millions of dollars, including an $8 million advance for “Tha Carter V” received an eight-figure payout from Universal Music Group and officially cut ties with Birdman’s record label, Cash Money Records.
