Nas previously had a problem with federal property taxes, owing approximately $6 million in unpaid debt. Now, the State of Georgia has another bone to pick with him, this time for $1 million.
According to TMZ, the State of Georgia has filed legal documents looking to collect $1,083,435 from Nas for the years 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010. The Georgia Department of Revenue is commanding Live Nation to garnish wages made from Nas’ current tour with Lauryn Hill in an effort to garnish his wages.
A representative for Nas says that the matter has been settled, but the GDR’s case is still open and they’re looking to recoup the money.
The U.S. government previously took a similar approach for Nas’ federal taxes, claiming that he owed approximately $6 million. The IRS filed documents in Georgia to garnish his wages through BMI and ASCAP until his debt was settled.
