Apr 13, 2012, 15:04 GMT
Lionel Richie reportedly owes over $1.1 million in unpaid tax.
The soul singer, who resides in Los Angeles, has been hit with a lien - an official claim against his property - for the payment of his debt which totals $1,130,609, according to TMZ.com.
The musician has racked up a huge number of hits over the years, including 'Hello', 'Dancing On The Ceiling' and 'Easy Like Sunday Morning', and according to legal documents he is worth a reputed $200 million.
If Lionel - who recently released a duets album, 'Tuskegee', featuring new versions of his greatest hits - fails to pay the bill then the American government could repossess his property to clear the debt.
The 62-year-old star - the father of Nicole Richie - will next appear alongside Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke as judges on new TV show 'Duets'.
His representative is yet to comment on the claims.
