Katt Williams can’t seem to catch a break, especially now that the famed comedian has reportedly been cited for owing the government over $200,000 in back taxes.
Katt Williams’ name in the headlines has been nothing short of tumultuous, with the laugh act being arrested in November for burglary and trespassing.
Following that initial arrest he was detained by police at a Georgia Wal-mart in December, faced a $230,000 lawsuit later that month from a former assistant and faced a $1 million lawsuit in March for an alleged dog attack.
Now Williams is being sanctioned to pay the government an estimated $280,000 in unpaid taxes.
The Detroit News reports that IRS officials filed a demand against him for $284,419 on 15 March at the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds.
His manager has since released a statement saying,
“Mr. Williams will pay all debts owed to the IRS.”
