Music producer and “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star Stevie J owes nearly $110,000 in state taxes, according to two federal liens placed recently by the state of Georgia.
Under his actual name Steven A. Jordan, he owed $8,728 in 2012 but over six years, the total increased to $17,346.08 due to collection costs, interest and penalties. A second lien combines the rest from 2013 and 2014: $52,222 in taxes plus another $40,000 or so in interest, penalty and collection fees.
The combined total: $109.949.51.
Bossip broke the story though it had a slightly different total: $110,507.
Stevie J started working with “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” when it debuted on VH1 in 2012 and it quickly became a hit show.
A spokeswoman representing “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” did not respond to an inquiry regarding this story.
According to the state of Georgia Department of Law’s Consumer Protection Unit, Stevie J can’t escape paying the liens. They do not expire and he either has to pay it or when he sells property in Georgia, the state will automatically collect the amount owed from proceeds of the sale.
The documents are below:
He also owes $1.3 million in child support but managed earlier this year to escape prison time, according to TMZ.
