According to a federal tax lien found by TMZ, Nicolas Cage may owe more than $6 million dollars in back taxes. While the lion’s share dates back to 2007, Cage still owes more than a quarter million on his 2002-2004 paychecks. Considering the fact that he’s starred in eleven movies in the last five years (with another five in the can), it’s odd he can’t get the IRS off his back.
And they’re not the only people jumping on. Word leaked last week that LA’s East West Bank hit Cage with a lawsuit for defaulting on a $2 million loan. $2 mil? From the way Ghost Rider buys and sells castles you’d think he could cut them a check. Is Nic burning through those National Treasure paychecks at warp speed, or does he need to find better accounting help? When it comes to a guy who named his son after Superman, we’re inclined to believe either.
