DMXJoining a long list of rappers and other entertainers, DMX, too has tax problems. New reports show that the Yonkers-based emcee owes over $1.5 million to the IRS and the state of New York.

According to SOHH, the rapper owes various payments to the government. Back on January 2, of this year, the IRS filed a lien on DMX for nearly $450,000 in the New York City Register’s Office. On September 10, 2007 the IRS filed a lien on him for nearly $700,000 in the Maricopa County (Arizona) Register’s Office.

Apparently, DMX owes income taxes from 2002, 2003, and 2005. Tax warrants have been filed against DMX (real name Earl Simmons) and his entire Simmons family in 2005, 2006, and 2007. To the government, DMX owes a combined $1.5 million.

In an effort to begin paying this off, DMX is working on his new albums, which will be released sometime in 2010.
