The IRS is Coming After the Michael Jackson Estate for $700 Miillion!

mjirsTax season is here and the can be someone’s best friend or worst enemy.  It looks as if the estate may be of the latter and is in a world of trouble with Uncle Sam

According to legal documents obtained by the L.A. Times — when Michael died the estates’ s executors told the IRS his net worth was around $7 million. The IRS now says ’s net worth was actually $1.125 !

The IRS claims the Estate didn’t pay $505 million worth of and due to an unprecedented % tax penalty issued by the IRS, the total owed is now an astounding $702 million.

Here is what the IRS claims the estate under reported:

  • The Estate valued MJ’s likeness at $2,105. The IRS says the value is actually more than $434 million.
  • The Estate valued Michael’s interest in a trust that owns songs by MJ and the Beatles at ZERO! The IRS says its more like $469 million.
  • There’s another MJ trust the Estate claims is worth $2.2 mil. The IRS says it’s worth $60.6 mil.
  • The Estate valued the Jackson 5 master recordings at $11.2 mil. The IRS says $45.5 mil.

The Michael Jackson estate plans to fight these allegations, charges, and penalties.

The LA times spoke with a representative of the estate and they said, “The Estate of Michael Jackson disputes the IRS position in its entirety.”

The rep also said, “The Estate used independent, nationally-recognized and highly-qualified expert appraisers in determining the value of the Estate’s assets. By contrast, the IRS consultant’s values are not based on standard appraisal methodology, but rather are speculative and erroneous assumptions unsupported by the facts or law. The Estate has paid over $100 Million dollars in taxes and is in full compliance with the tax laws.”
