‘Teen Mom’ stars Catelynn Lowell and [Tyler Baltierra]( are being accused of owing a huge amount in back taxes, and now the government has slapped tax liens on the couple — which could become an issue for the reality stars.
According to several reports, the couple was hit was a federal tax lien for $535,010.97 in November of 2019. The money owed is allegedly from the years 2016 and 2017.
Of course, the couple makes a huge amount of money starring in the ‘Teen Mom’ series, but they also other businesses as well.
That’s not all…apparently the couple was [slapped with another federal tax lien in the amount of $321, 789 in December of the same year.
This amount was for income earned in 2018. Plus, Catelynn also received a tax lien in the amount of $36,422 in July of 2019.
According to The Sun, who broke the story, a clerk in Sanilac County, Michigan confirmed the tax liens remain unpaid.
As you can imagine, Catelynn and Tyler earn hundreds of thousands of dollars starring on ‘Teen Mom,’ and the couple also owns children’s clothing brand, ‘Tierra Reign.’
The cast of ‘Teen Mom OG’ reportedly pulled in a whopping $25,000 per episode…EACH! Plus, the couple’s children also get paid for starring in the reality series.
Interestingly, it seems Tyler is not so worried about the massive debt, saying in a recent interview that his children are “set up for life” based on the money they made from the show.
“College is paid for and that was mine and Catelynn’s main thing – each of our children has trust funds that money goes into and they can’t touch,” he said.
It is possible, the couple has made enough money, that they are just not aware of the pending tax debt — and may clear it asap.
This isn’t the first time stars of ‘Teen Mom’ have run into tax issues. In 2016, Amber Portwood was hit with a federal tax lien for the $134,919.21.
Also, Kailyn Lowry has said publically that she was forced to pay back taxes…but has since hired an accountant to handle her money.
Maci Bookout has also had her issues with Uncle Sam after she was hit with several tax liens between 2013 and 2017, totaling over $100,000.
