Lindsay Lohan owes a tax debt

Now Lindsay Lohan owes back taxes? Once again, girlfriend can't seem to catch a break.

The government is coming after Lohan for nearly $94,000, according to tax-lien papers filed Thursday in L.A., after the actress allegedly failed to pay income tax in 2009.

(Note to Lindsay: Something like this didn't go well for Wesley Snipes.)

Sources told TMZ that Lohan thought her accountants were handling that sort of thing, and intends to pay the bill immediately. Her Playboy paycheck ought to help out a bit, no? Good timing. The lien has been filed against her home in Encino, according to E! Online, which also reported that Lilo's rep isn't commenting on her personal finances.

Lindsay was definitely in full-tabloid mode in 2009, breaking up with Samantha Ronson, jetting around the world, showing up late for court and getting her probation extended. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but recall that right about tax-filing time in 2010 she was busy suing ETrade over "that milkaholic Lindsay" and no-showing for civil-suit depositions and it becomes clear how income taxes might not make the short list of things to do.

Having recently replaced her business team (or so TMZ sources said), she's currently busy doing morgue duty regularly in an attempt to finally get through probation and on with life. She also stepped out at the Chateau Marmont on Wednesday night for a party hosted by the Weinstein Co., to celebrate award season.
