The State of Georgia is rooting for Nas to make a fortune on his concert tour … because the government just got the green light to garnish a MILLION BUCKS from his earnings to repay a massive tax debt.
The Georgia Department of Revenue has filed new legal docs in their effort to collect $1,083,435 from the rapper for taxes it claims Nas owes for the years 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010.
According to court docs, the GDR obtained an order commanding Live Nation — the promo company behind Nas’ tour with Lauryn Hill — to garnish his wages until the dept is satisfied.
The tour is currently underway, and Nas– who’s also on the hook for millions in unpaid taxes to the federal government — is sure to make a boatload of money.
A rep for Nas tells us the matter has recently been settled — but the GDR insists the case is still open and they’re trying to collect.
Pay your taxes, people
