IRS Seeks To Recover Unpaid Taxes From Estate Of Scott Weiland
April 16, 2019 12:15PM EDT
Even in death, Scott Weiland can’t stay out of trouble.
The IRS has reportedly filed a tax lean against the Stone Temple Pilots singer’s estate, claiming he didn’t pay his federal income tax from 2012 to 2014. The grand total of what he owed: $818,569.
The lien follows one filed last year by the California State Tax Franchise Board for $250,000.
Weiland was 48 when he died from a toxic mix of illegal drugs and alcohol on his tour bus in December 2015.
Is it fair for the IRS to go after a dead person’s family for money? Had Weiland survived the overdose, do you think he would have straightened out his life by now?
