Dez Catching Heat
Bryant getting hit by IRS for $80k
According to TMZ, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant failed to pay almost $80,000 in taxes back in 2013, and now they are going under the hood to review it.
Seems Dez Bryant threw up the X to Uncle Sam back in 2013 … failing to pay roughly $80,000 in federal income taxes … this according to official records obtained by TMZ Sports.
The IRS filed a federal tax lien against Bryant in Dallas … claiming he never paid $79,274.75 in income tax for the money he made back in 2013.
Seems like chump change for Bryant now thanks to his new $70 million deal … but back in ’13, Dez only raked in a measly $1.8 mil, according to Spotrac.com.
Bryant, who is out for a few months with a broken bone in his foot has not been reached for comment, but I’m sure this can be solved with a simple phone call and a swipe of a pen to a checkbook.
Of course the last time we heard of a player owing money it turned out a bit different, but since IK Enemkpali was signed to the Buffalo Bills practice squad in September, if the IRS needs an enforcer, I am sure they can afford to bring him in.
