Cage Hit With $6.2 Million Tax Bill
NICOLAS CAGE has been hit with a massive $6.2 million (£4.1 million) demand from U.S. tax officials, according to news reports.
The star is accused of failing to keep up with his taxes in 2007, and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials have taken their case to a court in Louisiana, where Cage has a home he's trying to sell, in a bid to try to recoup the cash.
The Detroit News reports IRS officials filed tax lien documents against Cage in Orleans District Court on 14 July (09), alleging he failed to pay $6,257,005 (£4,171,336) to cover his income tax in 2007.
It's not the actor's first run in with tax bosses - according to ABC News, he agreed to pay over $660,000 (£440,000)-plus interest in back taxes and penalties in September 2008, following allegations of improperly deducted personal expenses.
