The Sun previously reported that the 42-year-old owed more than a million dollars from multiple outstanding tax liens after he bought a $2M Los Angeles mansion with his wife Brittany Cartwright shortly before being axed from VPR. Now the outlet has reported that he has still not paid off the debts, after confirming the matter with the California State Tax Board and officials with the IRS.
According to the court records obtained by The Sun, he owes $316,571 for the 2018-2019 period. This tax lien is the most recent after it was filed on March 10. The records noted that the fees and interest will continue to accumulate until the outstanding balance is paid.
The former Bravo star reportedly had $198,190 in federal taxes added to his outstanding balance in 2018. He is also said to owe almost $23,000 from 2014.
Taylor and his wife closed the deal on their home in December 2019, which added $646,867 to his unpaid federal taxes.
In total, The Sun noted that Taylor owes the IRS $868,035. When combined with state dues, he needs to pay $1.2 million.
In April, Taylor addressed his tax situation on Instagram Live. "Oh yeah, I had a bad tax situation. I had a bad bookkeeper. We all get bad bookkeepers," he said at the time.
"I suggest researching your bookkeeper when you pay your taxes because I got f****d," he continued. "I’m fixing it. It’s not a big deal."
In December, it emerged that Taylor and Cartwright would not return to VPR.
"The last 5 years on Vanderpump Rules have been some of the most challenging, rewarding and fulfilling years of my life," the 32-year-old shared on Instagram at the time. "Although this is difficult to share, Jax and I will not be returning for another season of Vanderpump Rules. We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors. @bravotv, @evolutionusa and our Vanderpump castmates will always remain close to our hearts."
In December, Andy Cohen said on his SiriusXM Radio Andy show that he had "to give it up" to the couple. "Have you seen a run on a — specifically Jax — like, Jax created so much story, drama, conversation in his eight years on that show. That’s quite a run that he had," he said.
