Snoop Dogg (also known by his other stage names, Snoop Doggy Dogg and Snoop Lion, and by his given name, Calvin Broadus), has reportedly resolved his outstanding tax issues with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). According to TMZ, the IRS issued a lien in February 2013 and alleged that Snoop Dogg owed the government $546,270.29 in unpaid taxes for tax years 2009 and 2011. Specifically, the IRS claimed that Snoop Dogg owed $101,952.44 for unpaid taxes in 2009 and $444,317.85 for unpaid taxes in 2011.
This wasn’t the first time that Snoop Dogg found himself owing money to the IRS. In 2008, the IRS informed Snoop Dog that he owed approximately $475,000 in unpaid taxes. That tax debt was resolved before the current lien was issued on Snoop Dogg’s property.
Snoop Dogg reportedly paid his outstanding tax debt for 2009 and 2011 in full in late April 2013.
Snoop Dogg began his music career in 1992 and has sold more than 30 million albums around the world over the last 21 years. He is known as a singer, actor, rapper, and reggae artist.
