    Default Britney Spears busted for back taxes

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
    Britney Spears owes almost $24,000 in back taxes.

    According to a state tax lien, obtained by Access Hollywood, Spears still owes the money for the 2004 tax year.

    As a result, the State of California Franchise Tax Board has put a lien on Britney On Line Inc., a company in the portfolio of the pop star.

    The amount due will accrue interest and fees until it is paid in full.

    Yeah well I doubt she even knew about it. That's what her Accountant & Business Manager are paid to do.

    Isn't it scary for celebs to have virtually no control over their finances? It seems like this kind of shit happens all the time!

    Well, I personally think that celebs have as much control as they want to have. If they want it to be totally hands off and just use their credit cards for everything they can. If they choose to actually review their statements, look at their taxes, etc. then they would probably catch these people that scam them.

    I don't think it's ok that her accountant f-ed up, but maybe Brit should be more involved in her life (I know we are talking about Brit and that's a BIG request).

    Doesn't a person get nasty-grams in the mail from the tax man before they put liens on shit?
