Montell Jordan is in trouble with the IRS for not paying $617,987.06 in taxes between 1999 and 2001, but he swears he's handed over the money…it's just with the wrong people.
The Internal Revenue Service filed a Federal Tax Lien for his back taxes, but the This Is How We Do It singer claims the cash is frozen in a bank account administered by the U.S. Trustee Program which was set up when he filed for bankruptcy in 2004.
Jordan sold his music catalogue to pay off his debts and insures sources that the case is close to being closed because the money will be released to the IRS in a few short weeks.
For his sake, we hope that money is where he says it is because we last heard that the R&B artist had left music to become a pastor. Needless to say, he's probably not making the kind of money he used to.
