Scott Weiland can serve as a reminder to all Americans, as they scramble to file last minute tax returns, Uncle Sam will get his money whether you're alive or not.

One week before the tax deadline, the IRS filed a huge tax lien against the rockstar, who died in 2015. According to the documents, obtained by The Blast, Weiland did not pay his federal income tax from 2012 - 2014 and owes $818,569.62.

The lien was filed against the former "Stone Temple Pilot" singer's estate, and lists his ex-wife, Mary Weiland, as his representative. As we reported, Weiland's estate was hit with a lien last year by the California State Tax Franchise Board for almost $250,000.
