According to papers filed at the Los Angeles County Recorder's Office on Monday (04.04.11), Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne owe more than $1.7 million in unpaid taxes
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne reportedly owe more than $1.7 million in unpaid taxes.
Papers filed at the Los Angeles County Recorder's Office on Monday (04.04.11) allege the 62-year-old rocker and his wife, 58, failed to pay $718,948.25 for the 2008 tax year, and $1,024,175.03 for 2009, according to gossip website TMZ.
This is not the first time the Osbourne family have been accused of owing taxes, in 2009 papers were filed claiming Sharon had not paid $23,000 due to the state of California for the 2007 tax year.
Meanwhile, last month the couple's 26-year-old TV presenter daughter Kelly was said to owe $34,763.30 to the state of California dating back to 2009.
If found guilty, Kelly - who recently moved into a new apartment in Los Angeles - could face fines or jail time and may have to forfeit assets if she can't raise the money.
Although Kelly didn't respond directly to the claims, she appeared to rubbish the allegations on her twitter account, writing: "im getting less & less resilient to all the bulls**t stories i keep reading about myself i do enough stupid s**t no need to make things up! (sic)"
Kelly is reportedly worth $15 million thanks to her role on E!'s 'Fashion Police' show, Closer magazine column deal, acting projects and her new job as the spokesperson for Madonna's Material Girl clothing range.
