Feds: Miami rapper Rick Ross owes us more than $5 million

Carol City rapper Rick Ross has a tax problem the size of which most of his fans will never, ever have.

Internal Revenue Service officials went over some of his most recent income tax filings and concluded Ross hasn’t paid enough of his share to Uncle Sam.

When will it be enough?

When the hefty 40-year-old singer of “Purple Lamborghini” and “Aston Martin Music” comes up with more than $5.75 million!

According to two tax liens filed by the feds, Ross — aka former Miami-Dade County jail guard William Leonard Roberts — underpaid on his income for 2012 by a grand total of $4,617,370.

And 86 cents.

For the years 2013 and 2014, the IRS claims, Ross underpaid by a combined $1,147,141.77.

To make sure the rapper pays up, the IRS slapped liens on the big guy’s suburban Atlanta house, which is worth roughly what the agency says he owes.

Ross’ lawyer in the ATL didn’t reply to an email for comment.

Taxes, however, aren’t Ross’ biggest problem.

RR is still facing trial in Georgia in connection with the pistol-whipping and alleged kidnapping of a groundskeeper on his sprawling property. At a hearing in June, he said he acted in self defense.
