R&B crooner and Taylor Gang signee Ty Dolla $ign is reportedly in hot water with Uncle Sam over unpaid taxes.
According to TMZ, Ty Dolla (real name Tyrone William Griffin Jr.) is reportedly $180,969.35 in the hole, which is accumulative of three separate years — 2011, 2013 and 2014, where the federal tax lien outlines unpaid balances of $16,617.05, $54,626.91 and $109,725.39.
2014 was the first year Ty$ started releasing retail product (his platinum-selling single “Paranoid” was released a few months prior in September 2013).
Despite debuting on the music scene with retail products and sales in 2014, it is reported that during those periods in question the Los Angeles native didn’t have an accountant to properly pay out the taxes of his earnings.
In other news, Ty Dolla $ign recently dropped the video for his single “Stealing” off of his current project, Campaign which dropped in September.
The video features a close-up of Ty Dolla Sign as he sings in front of a black background and looks directly at the viewer while crooning about his inclination for making women fall in love. He serenades:
“Momma please don’t judge me/Cause I’m a criminal/Mom, I know you love me/Even though I’m a criminal/No, it’s not subliminal/No, and it’s not terminal/Oh, oh, oh, oh, it’s emotional/Stealing all these bitches hearts.”
