Mo'Nique now owes the U.S. government $560K in unpaid taxes

Since I was checking on Keshia Knight Pulliam's tax issues earlier this week, I decided to get an update on Mo'Nique's situation for the first time since 2016.

Based on the Department of Treasury records, the comedienne and Duluth resident now owes even more money.

In 2016, she had a tax lien filed against her for the years ending 2013 and 2014 for a total of $389,904.98. Last fall, the federal government said she was late paying her taxes in 2015 as well to the tune of $170,720.74.

So the Oscar-winning actress now owes the U.S. government $560,625.72.

That $500,000 she recently rejected from Netflix might have come in handy, eh?

By the way, I didn't break this story. Several websites posted about this last fall and I just missed it.
