TIP Tameka Alfamega

T.I. Harris, 37, and Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 42, are reportedly dropping their bid to block the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from seizing their assets to repay their substantial tax debt.

The hip-hop star, real name Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., and his wife have been battling IRS officials after they were hit with three tax liens to recover $6.2 million in unpaid taxes.

According to documents obtained by gossip website The Blast, the hip-hop power couple filed documents requesting a review of the IRS decision after Uncle Sam informed them they would begin seizing their assets to pay off the debt.

Their motions were dismissed because they missed the filing deadline to request a review.

The couple appealed the dismissal, blaming a delivery service for their late filing, but according to The Blast they have now filed to dismiss their appeal and are in discussions with IRS lawyers.

The case has reportedly been closed, but the tax liens are still active pending an agreement between the star and tax officials over the debts, according to

    Whew! they gonna be working hard for the money.

  • Gloria

    The IRS does not play. Period. I'm glad they are sorting it out so they won't be behind bars like Mr. Isley and Wesley Snipes! Too rich to not handle money properly.

  • davine puddin

    Maybe instead of a reality show have a network show with real writers. Bounce always give our peeps platforms. Maybe tip and tiny need to write books together. However i think they have the talent to pull off a show how will smith did...and
    Don't have it like power or empire...I liked my wife and kids format

  • You Could Never

    They will show up and take literal money out of your pocket like they did Redd Foxx and will leave you standing in your driveway in your undies like they did him too. Was a wee lass when that happened to him but will never forget the news coverage of that.

    Keep playing. Bc they are NOT.

  • A D N

    Is that the negotiated amount? They need a better TAX accountant! So that's the reason for the new home and story line of divorce...makes sense. Nene did the same...

  • Breitbart_Savior

    Some say taxation is governmental thieft....

  • tintin

    American government don't play with the taxes i see

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Just pay it they have it

  • Rayne

    Got damn IRS gangsters. Can’t have nothing.

  • Li

    OT: K. Michele removes butt implants

  • MsPam

    He can afford to pay them now, he’s on Mayor Bottoms administration team.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Hopefully they fired their accountant.
    If I'm an accountant and my client get a letter from the IRS saying they owe millions in back taxes, then I'm not doing my job.

  • Ni Ni

    I don't understand how the IRS lets your tab run up like that. They should have notified them once it got in the hundreds.

  • Shawty

    If it was you or I, they would've frozen every account we own and garnish our paychecks until they retrieved every red cent! Would leave you unable to buy off the dollar menu at Mickey D's.

  • Look@m3

    ...then have the nerve to tax you from the past due date instead of the date they found the error. Tax thugs..

  • ShelbyMoore

    Great for she needs to give that doctor's number to the rest of these fools out here.

    LISTEN UP!!! Everyone, not some of you, but ALL of you with fake as$es look like friggin idiots. Not even the men who are fawking you think that shat looks good. Take that shat out and act like you have God given sense.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Nope....I owed them three times and I made sure I mailed in their money before they even sent for it.

  • Ni Ni

    They just want to keep us down, smh.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Reality TV is a curse. I'm telling you.....

  • bashi

    Wow IRS treats these black entertainer rough

  • Jessica

    To whom much is given, much is required.

  • Ghost

    Hell..they notified me when I owed them $127! Then sent a letter stating the penalty and interest (which was almost the amount owed) if I didn't pay with 30 days! so I don't understand how folks don't know they owe MILLIONS!

  • Scromes1212

    Got to pay your taxes smh hopefully this gets resolved soon

  • Roderick2011

    I don't understand why black celebrities especially musicians can't keep up with their finances.

    I have a friend who is a musician and every few months we talk and he tells me how the IRS and state of California ganked his bank account and left him with a couple of dollars.

    I told him that he needed a new accountant.

  • Roderick2011

    Not really. Just find a good tax attorney and let them handle your business unless you're doing something illegal.

  • Roderick2011

    Is that you Wesley Snipes?

  • Roderick2011

    These black entertainers aren't taking care of business.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Work it out!

  • justlooking

    Lets get an update on Lil Wayne..he file appeal or nah.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Because you alone are solely responsible for the taxes. Most jobs take them out for you & provide a W2 at the end of the year, Not entertainment. And most of these folks are not use to handling that type of manner in a responsible manner.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Not unless they didn't give the accountant all the info. I had a client mad with me cause the irs told them they owed $1,000 and come to find out they missed one of their 1099s

  • Roderick2011


    I know that people are responsible for their taxes and my point is that these people have enough money to help them manage their money and pay their taxes so they have no excuse.

  • Anunnaki

    Theft by receiving, . Smdh.. next

  • You Could Never

    There are A LOT of entertainers not taking care of their biz with the IRS. Black white and even non Americans. The Osborne's been in IRS trouble as has Pamela Anderson. they arent even FROM here. How folks made this into a black/white issue is beyond me. This is a green issue lol

  • millz

    On this good earth...there are three peoples I don't mess with ... the "I" the ''R,'' and the ''S.''

  • brillant smith

    lmao but you so right

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    They lack financial maturity.

  • starbright9449


  • Roderick2011

    Because there are few blacks who are able to earn millions in America so why can't people remember to pay their damn taxes because owning the IRS back taxes and penalties is just another way of destroying black wealth.

    How many examples (Redd Foxx, Wesley Snipes, Mary J Blige, et al.) do we need before we just do the right thing?

  • Keisha Hannah

    They know

  • Tee Bullock

    I love that movie!!!

  • Goddess™

    What was the name of that movie again?

  • Trace da Ace

    is it the "norm" for folks that are rich to all of a sudden have amnesia when it comes to Uncle Sam???? How can you make all of that money and forget to pay taxes??? You can buy 2-3 houses, own 6-7 cars, have property all over the USA....but forget your taxes???? I mean for real??? Are folks that cheap that they think they can avoid the IRS???.....dont mess with FBI, CIA, ICE, IRS....NOTHING!!!

  • Jack Blakk

    Celebrities and superstars are able and told to defer their taxes. It's all good till the IRS pull your number, and they always wait for you to take out a bunch of loans!

  • itsjismemelly

    when are people goin to learn!!! the IRS does not play!!! they take no hostages that jis hit you in the jugular!!!

  • SandraRose

    I can explain....
    Rappers take $10K-$30K cash under the table to perform club gigs. They think they're getting away with free cash. What they don't know is the club owners list those cash payments on their taxes to get a tax write off. The thing to remember is the IRS always gets their money. ?

  • Tee Bullock

    Set it off

  • You already know ?

    All of the Alphabet Boys!..??????

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    That's what the Harris gets...don't feel sorry for these 2 flamboyant dummies.

  • Pnthr

    Power couple and mogul that can't pay their bills? Oh.

  • MythCalledLove

    Daaaaaamn...He should hv known the IRS DEA AARP FYI..any and all alphabet agencies had him & Tiny on their radar after his jail term.. The saying is all you hv to do is "Eat,Sleep,Sh!t, and pay taxes..

  • MythCalledLove

    Damn get out of my I just wrote the same thing. So you know if we know why the hell did they think they could fly under the radar..

  • BadAss Will

    Maybe if he wouldve let tiny work in the past they wouldn't be having this problem. He's an asshole


    curse them out TI

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    SMH!! All that money he's made and cant pay your taxes. Haven't these dummies learned from those before them sheesh!!!

  • Trey

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Frontin arse negros.

  • Renee26

    I wonder what assets they actually own....the houses?? I see Tiny moving back into the family home soon

  • Renee26

    Just triflin

  • Juliaquan C Spain


  • Shenanigans1

    Who is their accountant, personal assistants, lawyer and so on and so forth. I know that both of them know way better than this. How the h3ll you miss a deadline for review with the dang on IRS?! Like how?

  • Renee26

    They know this....they just think they can get away with it

  • Coco_Butter

    Or worse put them in jail like Wesley Snipes and Ron Isley. They better make a payment plan lol

  • Renee26

    Once you cross a certain income threshold you have money managers or financial planners at your disposal....they don't have an excuse.

  • Vegas1989

    That's why I will always file my own taxes no matter what...Even when I hit the lottery...I will File my taxes.....LOL...That's where that Master degree will kick in and all them accounting classes...

  • Vegas1989

    I know that rights. You don't want to mess with the IRS. File and Pay your TAXES

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    No wonder my girl been on show after show after show after he initially told her no that one time.

  • VM

    You can only hide for so long if that is the case with this situation. How do you even get to this amount when you know how this works, wreaks of negligence on their part.

  • Diva4lyfe

    if they have after they collect all their coins

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Unless you are money stupid.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    But YOU CAN HAVE WUTEVA YOU LIIIIIIKE! The both should feel like 2 dayum fools!

  • Roderick2011

    I think it's deeper than that.

    It's almost as if some of these black celebrities are afraid to manage their money because they didn't grow up with much and they are intimidated and they take a hands off approach.

    A long time ago Oprah said that she signs every check and knows how much is her bank account(s).

  • Panther Charleston

    The IRS like, nah, y'all still together (whether y'all like it or not). ?

  • Renee26

    Which they are lol

  • Patricia

    see, while some men are too busy playing with women and chasing tail, theres plenty of business to deal with at home.

  • XoXo

    She should've left when she had the chance, but misery love she company.

  • Ebony N’ Sweet

    I don't wish bad on anybody, But his homophobic a$$ deserves everything that's coming to him. #Karma

  • Faux Gibbler

    They lucky they not charged with not paying taxes.

  • RealATLPeach36

    I promise I do not understand. Rich people pay your dues to IRS Mafia, or they will come and take everything from you ....including your spirit and soul!

  • Yup, I said it

    Next were gonna hear that Tiny will be holding a peach on RHOA. Don't remember they remember how the IRS hemmed up Ron Isley? The IRS will have you out there selling cooty cat on the corner just to pay them back.

  • Goddess™

    Oh ok..thanks girl!?

  • guest

    I would bet....She let his a$$ phuck her monies up...SMDH

  • Yup, I said it

    I know Tiny need to let Bernice have Tip and his $6.2 millions tax lien

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. What's the point in hiring all those people if they're not going to be there to help you keep on top of important dates like this? Just seems really irresponsible.
    Somebody somewhere should have had that date circled in red on the calendar. Somebody dropped the ball badly on this.

  • Lady_Elle

    This is really sad!
    I wonder how many years this covers...
    The IRS will have you over a barrel...
    the longer you owe they apply DAILY FINES & PENALTIES.

  • Shenanigans1

    Right. I notice that it’s only US who seem to have problems paying the irs. I feel like it’s because we don’t have the right people behind the scenes around us. Making sure things are getting done the right way and are not just there to hang out. In this case idk if it’s bc tip and tiny seem to only employ family and close friends as their staff but they really need to clean house all over.

  • Jussjess25

    I swear the IRS never has a hard time seizing and find money from black whealthy people, but wont take a dime from a thieving ass white person. Shit makes me sick !

  • chelle

    now that Tiny is making some money moves of her own they probably will just pay it off..Tiny and her group are some place doing something at least 3 to 4 days a week, plus she has that basket ball team and a couple of other ventures. Now they are a power couple

  • chelle

    whats crazy T.I. said once in a interview about this, that he never ever see's his mail. He has someone that takes care of that. A lot of these rich people got someone to take care of the mail and someone to pay the bills for them, they have no idea IRS is even after them until it's all over the news..smh..they need to watch they money before they are in trouble they can't get out of.

  • don juan

    EXACTLY They have the tour revenue, merchandising, recording deal, tv movie deal, the deal w bravo,licensing plus Tinys other ventures and I have no idea what TI is doing but it seems thatbthey just didnt want to pay up.

  • don juan

    or you aren't going to listen to them

  • Boogie79

    It's not just US. The IRS don't care if you black, white, pink or purple. Don't believe me, look up Nic Cage, The Osbornes, The Situation, Willie Nelson.

  • Boogie79

    They don't forget, they get that tax bill and look at the amount they owe and say F it and probably spend that same amount owed on a new toy or in T.I. and Tiny's case, new eyes and separate apartments for the mistress.

  • Boogie79

    The penalty and fees are the killer. I can only imagine the fees and penalty amount for owing millions.

  • Boogie79

    That's why you have to keep a copy of your tax returns for at least six or seven years cause they love pulling that "there was an error" ish and you have until this date to pay some ungodly amount.

  • Shenanigans1

    Yeah you have a point. I forgot about Nick Cage.

  • Ms.Devereaux

    BUt guess who going to jail or property seized in the event business ain’t been handled right? I always said if I had money like that I would remain in control of that part of my life like I am now heck I would even take a few accounting classes so that I can also be on top of where my money going . Wesley snipes did Time behind this type of stud he said he never saw his mail or he had ppl to handle his taxes for him.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Wait.,.. They had all kinds of ventures before.... Realty shows, clothing lines, music groups, entertainment gigs etc... AND DON'T FORGET THEY STILL HAVE TO FUND THESE PROJECTS... YOU HAVE TO SPEND MONEY TO MAKE MONEY.... These hood rich fools so busy high-siding, making babies, partying, passing they dirty laundry and flaunting there wears.... They are the epitome of "when negroes get money go wrong" ...

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    They both do... She was RIDING FOR HER TIP AND CONDONING EACH OTHERS SHANANIGANS!! No morals and low values.... Between him snitching and her stupidity NOT ONE FUX DO I GIVE!!!

  • Skin Deep Beauty


  • tunjie

    Also as a financial lawyer I know that a lot of these cats just think they can get away with not paying taxes. They make a shit load of money and think they can get away with it. The 'I never see my mail' is just an excuse for their own negligence. The IRS will get those taxes one way or the other.

  • Pooh

    rich n*&&@ issues...


    I'm sure Kandi will let her hold something

  • Ms.Devereaux

    YEp!! ANd as a tax profe The IRS says YOU are responsible for your taxes period you can’t say oh my preparer messed up or oh my accountant messed up because guess what when those papers are submitted YOUR signature is on there acknowledging that everything is accurate and also given consent! They run around flossing but don’t wanna pay the tax man


    Never get on television or talk about your lifestyle in magazines when you not paying your taxes..... More than likely a hater will get you audited.

  • Trace da Ace

    Naw, that money went to lifting her sagging fake azz back up.....

  • Trace da Ace

    great minds think alike! #dapz

  • Tee Bullock

    Very welcome!

  • Yup, I said it

    I did and I will, if u put yourself in that situation then you gets what's you get.

  • PynkCloudz

    Always sign your own checks

  • Elle V

    I'm here for your folks def get the more harsher punishment. But the famous original cat face Leona Helmsley got 15+ years for tax evasion for several million dollars owed. She will go down in history as the woman that openly said "we dont pay taxes only the little people pay taxes" or something to that effect. I think that most white folk just know how to hide it in offshore accounts and shell companies, etc. Black folk get some coin and don't know how to play the game accordingly. That just my opinion.

  • Elle V


  • Elle V


  • Elle V

    Exactly...and the famous Leona Helmsley in the 80s and she was blatant with her refusal to pay them so she got 16 years in the penn.

  • Elle V

    School the children chile!!! That's exactly what happens...

  • Elle V

    Exactly...and it is possible to pay estimated taxes quarterly in advance so that when the end of the year rolls around one is not left with a huge chunk of tax debt. It's plain fiscal irresponsibility.

  • Elle V

    I think the statute of limitations is 3 years and the IRS moves quick if they don't get a resolution or hear back from an individual or married filers. If we assume this happened at some point in 2017, they would be looking at income from 14, 15 and 16 tax years.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Exactly. they are financially immature.
