Michael Jackson's father has landed in trouble with U.S. authorities after allegedly failing to hand over $2,720 (£1,754) in taxes.

Joe Jackson was hit with a lien from officials at California's Franchise Tax Board, who claim the former talent manager's overdue bill dates back to 2010, according to Tmz.com.

The 84 year old now lives in Las Vegas, where his late son's Cirque du Soleil tribute show, Michael Jackson One, premiered to much fanfare on Saturday (29Jun13).

Jackson, who is estranged from the family, did not attend.

It has been a rough year for the star - he suffered three strokes in late 2012 and he recently became caught up in a legal dispute with Wade Robson after he allegedly made slanderous comments about the choreographer in an online video.
