Reality TV star Kandi Burruss is allegedly refusing to pay her tax bill for her restaurant Old Lady Gang.
According to the documents, the Real Housewives Of Atlanta has reportedly refused to pay the $15,812.52 owed for her 2020 tax bill.
Consequently, the tax lien was filed against their property on Thursday, June 3, 2021. The documents from the IRS outline the process if the bill were to go unpaid, including beginning to seize the couple’s property and assets.
This isn’t the only problem Burruss has had with her restaurants lately. The hefty tax lien was filed just weeks after the Bravo star was forced to shut down her eatery Blaze after it failed a health inspection back in May.
The Georgia Department of Public Health filed a report at the time, citing the mishandling of raw food in the kitchen by the staff.
“Food handler touched raw oysters and raw salmon and then proceeded to handle ready to eat leafy greens with the same gloves on improperly. Moving from raw food to ready-to-eat foods is a source of cross-contamination,” the inspector wrote in the report.
Blaze received a score of 55 from the inspector, resulting in a forced closing to make the necessary changes, but the restaurant was back up-and-running just days later.
On July 14, the Atlanta restaurant underwent another round of inspection, but faced a similar outcome once again. This time, the staff received a score of 77 and a C rating.
The official also noted that the manager was not taking steps to “prevent foodborne illness by having repeated risk factors and good retail practice violations.”
Additionally, the report also noted that the staff had issues with storing foods at the proper temperatures, labeling foods properly, and mixing cleaning solutions correctly.
Burruss has yet to comment on any of the drama circling her businesses.
