Lindsay Lohan ‘is more than $100K behind on tax payments’

Lindsay Lohan claims she was not at fault for falling behind more than $100,000 in taxes to the U.S. government.

The 31-year-old, according to The Blast, has began a probe of her business team’s dealings to suss out why balances in the years 2010, 2014 and 2015 went unpaid, leading to a debt of $100,710.55 to the treasury.

The six-figure balance led federal officials to issue a tax lien on the actress, who thinks a manager at the Los Angeles business she hired to handle the payments bungled the transactions, insiders told the outlet.
