Jacqueline Laurita Owes Nearly $100,000 To IRS


It looks like former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita is facing more financial trouble. As we previously reported, the Lauritas just listed their Franklin Lakes Home, as seen on RHONJ, for $2.85 million. After being faced with a $338,337 lien in early 2013 and the possibility of a foreclosure on her home later that year, RadarOnline is reporting that Jacqueline is still getting requests from the IRS for $85,127 in unpaid tax bills!

The lien was filed in August, 2013, in Bergen County, New Jersey, government officials tell Radar of the most recent debt. The federal lien is another suggestions that the Laurita’s bills are piling up and that is why they are selling their home.

But this isn’t the first time Jacqueline has had to face the IRS. A $340,000 tax lien became public last year.

“The $340k was from a tax audit in 2006, in which about 1/2 of that was added interest,” Jacqueline wrote, explaining the situation. “We have been disputing this because we didn’t think it was fair to pay so much interest on something we didn’t even know we owed until recently. The IRS is currently working with us to lower the amount owed and once that new amount is decided, we will, of course, pay that amount. We are good people doing the right thing.”
