Flo Rida has been slapped with a $1 million tax bill.
The chart-topping rapper - whose real name is Tramar Dillard - reportedly owes the IRS $1,040,777.45, and the federal agency has put a lien against his home in Southern Florida giving them the ability the sell it to secure the payment.
The IRS filed legal documents against the 32-year-old 'Wild One' hitmaker in Miami-Dade County Court on September 7, which state that he hasn't filed taxes since 2009.
Flo Rida, who has produced on a string of hits including singles with T-Pain, Alexandra Burke and The Saturdays, purchased his 2.3-acre estate for $1.6 million two years ago.
The rapper - who is currently on a European tour - is just the latest in a string of celebrities such as Lauryn Hill and Nicholas Cage to be issued a large tax bill.
The rapper has been plagued by legal issues recently. Bosses of a security company have filed a lawsuit against him, claiming he failed to pay his bill for an alarm system they installed at his home. They are demanding payment plus interest amounting to $47,134 but Flo Rida claims he never authorised the work.
