Los Angeles: Veteran Hollywood actor Robert De Niro has been hit with a huge tax lien of over $6.4 million.
According to New York City documents acquired by the website The Smoking Gun, the actor was issued with the bill totalling a whopping $6,410,449.20 by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), reports femalefirst.co.uk.
With an estimated fortune of over $200 million, De Niro received the lien at his Tribeca address on Hudson Street, which he`s said to have bought as an investment property.
He was notified of the lien after it was assessed by the city Department of Finance in November last year, and it`s been issued to a property to secure the payment of taxes, or can even be issued following the failure to pay income or other taxes.
The 71-year-old actor and his wife live close to the house having moved out of their rental property in West Village, into a five-bedroom, $125,000-a-month apartment in New York last year, one of the city`s most expensive rental apartments.
