Lindsay Lohan is reportedly hard at work paying off her tax debt. The beleaguered former Disney star has paid off a nearly $94,000 tax bill for 2009 and is making a dent in the money she owed for 2010. Lohan allegedly used the $100,000 that Charlie Sheen gave to her during her time of fiscal need to help take care of her tax bill.
The Liz & Dick actress did finally thank the former Two and a Half Men star for his generosity, TMZ reports. The lack of proper etiquette in the delay of a show of gratitude to her benefactor was reportedly blamed on a broken cell phone and missing contacts.
Apparently Lohan’s people were at a loss as to how to contact Sheen’s people. The actress allegedly sent a hand-written thank-you note and flowers after she learned of Charlie Sheen’s statements about not receiving even a text to acknowledge the monetary gift.
Lindsay Lohan reportedldy paid the federal government $133,000 in order to remove the $93,701.57 to remove the 2009 tax lien and applied the overage toward the $140,203.30 she owed in taxes for both 2009 and 2010, the Los Angeles Times reports. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the star’s finances were frozen by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) due to the back taxes.
The Los Angeles IRS office issue a Certificate of Release of Federal Tax Lien after the 2009 amount was paid, Newsday notes. Both Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan could wind up paying taxes on the $100,000 because it is reportedly unclear if the money was a loan or a gift, Forbes magazine reports. The generous actor might have to apply the Lohan money to a lifetime gift-amount cap or pay a gift tax.
