The IRS Knocking on The-Dream’s Door For 117K in Back Taxes

On the heels of his recent claims that he grossed $15 million from royalties for Rihanna’s hit single “Umbrella,” singer-songwriter The-Dream has been hit with $117K lien by the IRS for failure to pay past taxes.

According to TMZ, the Georgia Department of Revenue has filed a state tax lien against the 34-year-old demanding repayment of the $60,578 worth of income tax he failed to pay in 2007 – plus another $56,823 in interest and admin fees.

Rihanna’s “Umbrella” shattered several chart records in 2007. Since then The-Dream has penned several hits for multiple artists so we’re sure he can pay that bill easily.
