Vanessa Williams Owes The IRS $370,000
Uncle Sam is out for Miss America.
Ex-pageant queen and actress Vanessa Williams allegedly owes the International Revenue Service nearly $370,000 in unpaid taxes. The IRS slapped the actress with the lien Aug. 5 stemming from her 2011 tax return, demanding $369,249.89, according to a document obtained by the Smoking Gun.
While Williams resides in Chappaqua, a New York suburb, the lien was filed under her accounting firm in Manhattan.
Since her 1984 victory as the first African-American to be crowned Miss America, Williams has racked up many accolades, including eight albums and several Emmy nominations for her work in ABC’s Ugly Betty.
