It looks like it's time to pay up for Kim Richards!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star reportedly owes about $118,000 in tax dollars to the state of California, all back taxes from fiscal years 2013 and 2014 when she was starring on the hit Bravo show! Hmmm…

According to media reports coming out Monday, the state government in California hit Richards with two separate tax liens for those two years.

Court docs suggest the reality TV actress and former child star owes $52,068.70 in unpaid taxes from 2013, and $66,689.31 in unpaid taxes from 2014, coming out to a grand total of $118,758.01. Yikes!!!

But fear not! Kim can pay those liens and get it cleaned up quickly and easily (well, if she's got the money…), and she's FAR from the only celeb who has run across a little tax trouble!

When Uncle Sam comes calling, SO many stars have had trouble paying up! Ch-ch-check out our full list of celebs — like Kim — who have been hit by tax controversies (below)!!!

As you may know, the musician *just* settled several old bills totaling $320,000… and now this!

This isn't Love's first run in with Uncle Sam — she also paid the IRS roughly $266,000 in 2015 for unpaid taxes in 2009 and 2011. Clearly she hasn't hired an accountant!

Only a couple of weeks left to file your returns, bbs!

Lisa Marie Presley Isn't Just Broke — She's Millions In Debt!

We'd heard Lisa Marie Presley had lost quite a bit of her inheritance — but this is so much worse than we thought!

After selling 85% of her interest in the Elvis Presley estate, she was flush — until, as she says, her former business manager, Barry Siegel, blew $100 million on bad investments. (He says she spent it all.)

But according to the latest documents in her divorce from Michael Lockwood, obtained by TMZ, Lisa Marie is actually $16 million in debt!

Apparently the bulk of that is $10 million in unpaid taxes — hope that doesn't get her into more trouble down the line — and a $6 million mortgage she defaulted on. The rest is credit card debt and attorney fees.

The revelation is in response to Lockwood's demand for her to pay his legal fees. Something tells us that isn't happening.

Shakira Facing Possible Tax Evasion Investigation In Spain — Hope She Doesn’t Join All These Celebs Who’ve Had Tax Troubles!

| Filed under: Oops!Legal MattersShakiraBusted!Tax Troubs

Shakira

Can't remember to forget you to pay your taxes, Shakira!

According to Spanish tax authorities, the 40-year-old singer faces a possible investigation for allegedly failing to pay income tax between 2011 and 2014. The country says the mom of two, who is said to be worth more than $200 million, lived in the country during those years.

Sources close to the celeb say Shakira has done nothing wrong and that she has always fulfilled her tax obligations. Not to mention, she was outside Spain most of that time.

If the Waka Waka songstress is found to have moved to Barcelona before 2015, her tax bill could be tens of millions of dollars.

We'll keep you posted if anything comes of this — but in the meantime, ch-ch-check out all the other stars to have tax troubles (below)!!

The Situation Pleads Guilty To Tax Fraud, Facing YEARS In Prison!

The Situation is looking grim.

Mike Sorrentino has reached a deal with the DOJ and agreed to plead guilty to tax fraud.

In case you forgot amid all the Jersey Shore revival hype, Mike and his brother Marc Sorrentino were indicted just over three years ago on charges of hiding income from the government.

The ongoing case only got worse last year as the MTV star was hit with more charges of tax evasion and falsifying records.

For hiding earnings of approximately $8.9 million between 2010 and 2012, The Blast reports Mike is facing a potential 15 years in prison, while Marc is looking at an even steeper 25-year bid.

It's a surprising turn of events considering just last week Sorrentino rejected a plea deal. Maybe he got a better look at his legal… situation?

Look, we're not going to apologize. It's not our fault he picked for his reality TV nickname a real word that might be necessary for describing his own legal matters years down the road.
