Brian McKnight Says Everything is Fine With His Finances –
Brian McKnight blames his past money problems on a bad accountant. In 2014, he sued his former accountant lawsuit against Vernon Brown and Company, claiming Brown ruined his life by not paying ANY of Brian’s taxes for close to a decade … resulting not only in more than a million bucks in back taxes, but more than $500K in penalties and interest.
On Tuesday, TMZ reported Brian McKnight had tax problems, but the singer set the record straight during an interview with The Insider, saying that the report is “old news,” and that “everything is fine” with his finances.
TMZ: Brian McKnight has been hit with a tax lien against his California house, and could lose the home because he failed to pay his tax bill, TMZ reports.
The IRS has imposed a lien against the home in order to secure $340k to satisfy an unpaid tax bill. Per a payment plan he worked out with the IRS in 2010, Brian was paying off the debt, but he stopped paying the monthly installments a year later.
McKnight is a multi-instrumentalist who plays eight instruments, and his work as a singer/songwriter and producer has earned him 16 Grammy Awards nominations, though he has never won. In 1999, McKnight released Back at One, his most successful album to date, which has sold over 3 million copies.
