Anna Nicole Smith tragically passed away in 2007, but that's not stopping the IRS from going after her for back taxes!
The troubled star who died from a drug overdose reportedly owes the Internal Revenue Service $289,123.48!
The government organization has filed several liens against her estate since the year 2000, but say:
"No part of said debt has been paid, and the same is now due and payable in the office of the District Director of Internal Revenue…Said debt has priority must be paid in full advance of distribution to creditors as and to the extent provided by laws."
Uncle Sam is basically taking candy from a baby because Anna's daughter Danielynn, who is being raised by Larry Birkhead, is the sole heir to the estate.
Hopefully they sort this mess out so and there is at least enough money left to pay for Danielynn's college education!
