As if the past year hasn't been rough enough for Katt Williams, now, thanks to Uncle Sam, he's being haunted by two previous years.
E! News has obtained a tax lien filed by the IRS on December 18 against the comedian.
According to the one-page document, Williams has two outstanding balances from 2008 and 2009. He owes $3,200,908.92 for the year 2008 and $829,352.11 for the year 2009, for a grand total of just over $4 million.
The revelation comes just days after Williams was cited by police in Hollywood for a parking violation and just weeks after he was arrested in Seattle following a bar fight. Not to mention other run-ins with the law over the last couple of months.
Williams recently announced he is retiring from stand-up comedy. Although, given what he owes the IRS, that might not be such a good idea now.
