Former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak and her estranged husband Kroy Biermann’s financial troubles continue to mount as the reality stars have just been hit with a second tax lien by the State of Georgia — adding to the $1.1. million they already owe to the IRS.
It has been revealed that The Georgia Department of Revenue filed a state tax lien against Kim and Kroy on April 3, 2023, according to official records obtained by Radar Online.
The lien stems from unpaid taxes from the year 2018. The state is accusing the couple of owing them $8,823. However, the actual amount owed presently has nearly doubled due to interest, penalties, and fees, bringing the debt to $15,104.72.
As previously reported, just a week later, the IRS filed a federal tax lien against Kim and Kroy for unpaid taxes for the years 2013, 2017, and 2018, to the tune of $1,147,834.47
With both tax liens put together, the Don’t Be Tardy alums now owe the Government a grand total of $1,162,939.39.
News of the couple’s financial woes simultaneously hit the press along with the duo’s decision to divorce, and both stories have been playing out heavily in the tabloids ever since. The split seemed to shock fans more than the RHOA alum’s money troubles.
Kim and Kroy’s Alpharetta, Georgia, mansion has been almost foreclosed upon twice, and it was mere weeks away from hitting the auction block back in February.
Kim’s former boss and Housewives producer Andy Cohen revealed on Tuesday, May 16, that he had previous worries over Kim’s spending habits, and he tried to quell her expensive shopping habit multiple times, fearing the couple was living beyond their means.
“There are so many clips of me saying to Kim, ‘I am worried about the way you spend your money. He is not a football player, he is a retired football player,’” Andy recalled on his SiriusXM show, Radio Andy. “Kroy was a retired football player. They didn’t have the football player money coming in anymore.”
The Watch What Happens Live host explained that he repeatedly warned Kim that she could no longer continue “spending” and “not saving.”
According to a source at PEOPLE, “the money has been a huge issue” for quite some time, and the tax lien “was just way too much pressure” for them.
