Nicolas Cage Hit with $6.2M Tax Lien

IRS says he owes money for unpaid taxes from 2007.

Nicolas Cage is facing a tax lien of $6,257,005 for unpaid taxes in 2007, according to filings submitted by the Internal Revenue Service in a New Orleans district court on July 14.

The sum is the amount the IRS is seeking for unpaid taxes in 2007, when Cage — who reportedly garners $12 million a film — starred in "Ghost Rider" and had a cameo in "Grindhouse."

 

The actor is currently trying to sell his $3.5 million home in Louisiana and $35 million Hollywood mansion to recoup some of the money.

 

Last September, Cage was forced to pay $666,000 plus interest to the IRS after it said he and his company had incorrectly deducted $3.4 million in luxurious personal expenses like limousines and a Gulfstream jet between 2002 an 2004.

 

Cage will star in the film "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans" with Val Kilmer and Vondie Curtis-Hall later this year.
