Prince pays up $1.3M in taxes owed to Carver County

The rock star came up with $1.3 million to pay the current and delinquent bills on Wednesday.

Last update: May 26, 2010 - 11:11 PM

Prince is no longer a tax pauper.

The reclusive rock star on Wednesday paid $1.3 million in current and delinquent property taxes that he owed on 14 parcels in Carver County, said Laurie Engelen, the county director of taxpayer services.

Looks like he's getting his affairs in order. Good for him.

Hate to break it to you, buddy, but you don't get props for doing what you oughta-should.

Taxes are a fact of life in every civilized country with an economy, infrastructure, and government. Period.

Do we really need news stories saying that he paid his taxes? No, because he should've fucking paid them like the rest of us schlubs (who, might i add, don't have the luxury of owning 14 different properties). Who pays for the 1.3 million that Prince decided to shirk (until he paid it off)? Anyone who lives in Carver County.

That isn't taking pride in your homeland or the place you grew up, like Prince so righteously speaks about being (that is, until 20TEN). It's shitting on the people who filled your coffers to begin with, not to mention put up with his bratty ass in the first place.

Did you really expect to see a lot of activity on any topic that is positive about Prince? (LOL)

I said from the beginning that he probaly has some issues with his accountants and that things would get straight. If you can fork over a 1.3 million dollar check you are not hurting for money. People on this board believe what they want to believe no matter what the facts are. sad

Sounds like ur a hater. It just seems to me his people have not been good at handling his business affairs not him not wanting to pay them. U seem like U have personal issues with Prince. Being jealous of him owning 14 properties is very juvenile. Get over it or just delete your account and save me the drama about ur issues with Prince.

eye will ALWAYS think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might of been aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not have been that surprised. R.I.P. prince

I haven't had issues with Prince since Uptown was in publication, bro. Save the psychology lesson.

It only takes 1 moderately-working ear and/or eye to tell that he sings songs talking about not wanting to pay taxes and sure-as-shit what happens? Boy can't pay taxes for the life of him. Nor can he pay for many, many, MANY things that he has left people w/ the tab over the years. You think this is new? You think somehow Prince just kept the same accountants and money people around since... oh, forever? President, please. You are smoking either rocks or pole - either way, you're fucked.

falloff

Prince needs to handle his own damn business.

And if this were anyone but Prince, people would be calling someone who doesn't pay his bills a "loser".

How is this good news? Didn't Prince himself get the bill and know he owed this money? Couldn't he had wrote the check himself?

If he doesn't have people who know how to handle his business, he needs to either hire someone else or take an accounting class and learn how to handle it.

I don't know who's worse: the people who live to be negative about Prince or those who can't stop stroking the purple pole.

Whatever man! Prince has been in the music industry over 30 years. This is the first time I EVER heard of him not paying his taxes. As far as him not paying people. I never heard of anyone suing him besides this year for anything unpaid.....Usually they just say he don't pay enough....

Tell that to:

The guitar manufacturers he stiffed

Tony M and Levi Seacer Jr who sued him

Wendy & Lisa who won't collaborate w/ him because he wants them to work for free

Rosie Gaines who got fed up from him not paying and left his dead ass

Shall we go on?

Who really gives a fuck if Prince didn't pay his taxes on time? There are more important things going on in the world, and it's none of our business anyway.

I sure as hell don't always pay my bills on time. I'm away on tour a lot too, and many times I've forgotten to pay a bunch of bills until I get back and see the reminder letters. I just have a lot of other shit going on.

Agreed! I'm usually late on bills just because I'm too busy to pay them, and throw them aside with the intention of paying them later and forget. Especially when it comes to taxes! Who the heck cares, they will get paid, so what if they are late? As if the gov't is never late sending money they owe!

Prince paid and that's all that counts. Lots of celebs don't pay taxes on time, big deal! He only owed a little bit over 1million, others owe over 10million. Prince has obviously had some problems with the folks who are supposed to pay his bills. He needs a new accountant, simple as that! Kudos to Prince for doing the right thing, I'm sure he was super busy and just forgot, happens to the best of us! Geez the man is human... biggrin

Prince is GORGEOUS. I'm inspired. GOD is GREAT. Is there anything else to say? lol

I c u will just find anything to put Prince down on. So i'm going 2 agree 2 disagree with U. But all those peeps U mentioned would be right at the front door of Paisley Park if Prince called them 2day. Which I doubt he will. Because he is the star not them....& where would they be today without him no where............
