MC Hammer is the latest celeb to be slapped with a lawsuit for failing to pay his federal taxes. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Hammer and his wife Stephanie were sued by the IRS for ignoring a $798,033.48 tax bill from his ’96 and ’97 income taxes.
Mind you, Hammer’s heyday was in the rear view mirror at that point — he released a greatest hits album in ’96, and after that … well, let’s just say there were zero pumps or bumps.
According to the documents, every penny Hammer’s LLC earns from here on out goes directly to the U.S. Treasury towards his tab.
