StarTribune: County puts Prince on notice: Pay bundle you owe in taxes

County puts Prince on notice: Pay bundle you owe in taxes

Carver County says that Minnesota's Purple One is in the red -- and it's not the first time.

Prince owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes, interest and fines on various properties that could end up being forfeited if the bills aren't paid.

PRN Music Corp., home to the pop musician's Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, owes more than $221,000 for 2009 taxes due the state, the Chaska School District and a host of other government bodies, according to a legal notice of delinquent taxes published last week in the Chaska Herald.

Numerous other properties in the county associated with Prince by his full name, Prince R. Nelson, also are on the delinquency list. Dollar totals range from about $268 to roughly $180,000.

No other property owner listed comes close to what the county says Prince needs to cough up.

Conceivably, property on last week's list could be forfeited, but that would be a few years down the road, said taxpayer services manager Laurie Engelen.

As required, the county sent Prince a notification letter on Feb. 15 about the delinquencies, Engelen said. She said she and others are unaware of Prince responding to either the letter or the published list.

Prince has been late other times paying his tax bill, Engelen said. On the studios, the bill was paid late in 2006 and 2008. He also was late in 2008 paying on a 156-acre swath bordering his home.

Representatives for Prince could not immediately be reached for comment.

Do they write stories about everyone who's late paying their taxes?

He might have to do a world tour and release a few concert dvds to pay for this and the law suits. 21 nites, and Montreux would be a good start.

Or he could just sit at home and launch a website with rehashed videos and minimal new content.

It may be negativity but that doesn't mean his personal life is in chaos; not taking control of the financial side--yes. Needs to be attended to ASAP. People other than P get rained on with a shower of negative s**t and come out on the other side--me, for instance. You withstand the onslaught of all these things and then life evens itself out. But the taxes--sheer carelessness!

Geezuz!

You would think playing the 02 for 21 nights would pay all those bills mad

Can the county add on to their list of "I Owe U's" fans of Lotusflow3r? Maybe they can "collect" refunds and stuff!

I totally understand that and I'm not predicting there's about to be another tragedy. I also think he should he should just try to take more control of his life instead of controlling what's on the internet.

Man, not good. But then again, maybe good. Maybe it gets him off his bum and on the road.

And sure this is a newsworthy story. Anyone that thinks not is out of touch with reality.

Ive gotten busted twice by the IRS. Once for $780 in 1998, and again in 2008 for $2,000 (which was actually owed by my ex).
I dont see how these celebrities think they can get away with hundreds of thousands or even millions. Makes no sense to me.

yeahthat Totally agree with you there! Always check out the ones who are supposed to be paying your bills and managing your money! That is advice for anyone (who actually has enough money to manage these days! LOL). razz
