Rick Ross Blames Former Accountant For Tax Woes, Settles Most Of Debt
Rick Ross has released a statement about his $5.7 million tax debt to the IRS.
Rick Ross says that he is fully aware of his current tax troubles, but in true “Bawse” fashion, he isn’t letting it stop him. Ross has released a statement saying that he is fully aware of the debt and has actually handled most of it.
In a statement to HipHopWired.com Ross writes:
“I’ve been fortunate enough to experience financial success on a large scale through both my music career and my many business ventures. With this type of financial success comes financial responsibility. As artists we are blessed to be able to make money, but on the same note, are held accountable for our federal tax obligations just like everyone else. I am fully aware of my current dealings with the IRS. This issue arose from an incorrect filing by a prior accountant for the 2012 tax year. My new team of accountants have corrected the prior filing, and as anyone who has dealt with the IRS understands, it is a process. We have already satisfied a large portion of these issues and I can assure you that we are working very closely with the IRS to bring a full resolution shortly and will continue moving forward in a positive direction!”
