It has been revealed that noted Obama superfan Mary J. Blige hates America. She’s eschewed her patriotic tax-paying duty for more than three years, landing her a $3.4 million IRS tax lien.
The queen of Hip-Hop-R&B got slapped with the lien after failing to pay income taxes for 2009 ($574,907.30), 2010 ($2,203,743.53), and 2011 ($647,604.60), per TMZ.
And that’s just federal taxes.
Mary J is on the hook by the state of New Jersey for a $901,769.65 tax lien that was issued back in February.
All told: That’s $4,328,025.08 worth of patriotism.
Flashback to last August, when Obama pushed to increase taxes
Americans across the country are engaged in the painful process of filing taxes. Many people are looking for fresh ways to reduce their liability. For example, the rap music community is maximizing tax refunds through the time-honored tradition of making it rain in the club. And this game-changing initiative is being pioneered by the lowest rung of the hip-hop hierarchy: The weed carriers.
Small businesses across the country are planning for economic hard times during President Barack Obama’s second term.
Democratic-controlled states throughout the country are experiencing financial difficulty and out-migration. President Barack Obama’s home state of Illinois, for example, recently had its credit rating downgraded by Standard & Poor’s following a failed effort to reform the state’s massively underfunded pension system. The state’s credit rating is now among the worst in the country.
