“Little Fockers” Star has Tax Liens for $433K in Back Taxes to IRS, State of California Franchise Tax Board

The Detroit News is reporting that Hollywood actress Teri Polo, perhaps best known for playing alongside Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller in “Meet the Parents,” has a tax lien for $433,736.


The former Playboy pinup landed the role after a string of TV show appearances, including “The West Wing.” She is also appearing in “Little Fockers,” which is in theaters this year.

-The Internal Revenue Service filed a tax lien against Polo in August in Kent County Delaware in August 2009, claiming she owes $114,843.95 in income taxes from 2007.

California claims she owes $91,748 for taxes in 2005 and 2006, according to a tax lien filed in Los Angeles County in 2008.

-A second IRS tax lien in Delaware also claims she owes $227,144.48 in back taxes for 2005 and 2006.

Polo blames her tax problems on a costly divorce and being unable to work while raising two young children. She reportedly has reached a deal with the IRS to repay the tax debt.
