MC Hammer's tax evasion continues to come back to haunt him, as the IRS demand $1.4 million as interest on taxes dating back to 1996.
MC Hammer's tax problems continue, even eighteen years after he famously filed for bankruptcy and lost all his master recordings in the process. We reported last December that the rapper owed almost $800,000 in taxes to the IRS, but apparently they're demanding even more, now asking Hammer for $1.4 million.
However, according to Hammer, the IRS are in the wrong. The veteran rapper managed to get out of most of his debt in 2007 when he paid off $7 million, which apparently included more than $1.4 million to the IRS. Now, seven years later, Hammer says the IRS have demanded another $1.4 million in penalties and interest on his 1996 unpaid taxes.
Hammer has filed legal documents, according to TMZ, asking a judge to block the IRS from collecting more money from the MC.
