Young Thug has been slapped with a massive tax lien for refusing to pay up on his tax bill.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, The Georgia Department of Revenue hit Thug (real name: Jeffery Williams) with a state tax lien on July 30.

The lien accuses Thug of owing a total of $145,794.03 for the year 2015. The original balance owed was only $85,254 but grew with interest ($21,125.88), penalties ($22,313.35) and other costs to the current debt.

The Department of Revenue warns Thug if he doesn’t pay up immediately they could begin the process of seizing his property and assets.

Thug shouldn’t be too worried as his highly anticipated album ‘So Much Fun’ will be released August 16, and should bring in enough cash to over the bill.

The rapper did receive some good news earlier this year when he got drug charges dismissed.

The case was over a September 2017 incident where he was pulled over for a window tint violation but cops supposedly smelled marijuana. They searched the car and then found other drugs and arrested Thug.

Back in March, a Georgia judge sided with Thug and ordered all evidence cops had to be suppressed. The judge agreed the police stop was improper and therefore the evidence couldn’t be used.

The judge wrote, “The prosecution failed to present credible evidence that this vehicle was violating the law when it was stopped by law enforcement," the order states, "and thus, all evidence that flowed directly and indirectly from this illegal stop and seizure must be suppressed, including, but not limited to, all statements, firearms and supposed drugs.”

Prosecutors filed an appeal of the decision which is currently pending.
