Allegedly, Maci Bookout of “Teen Mom” fame is in big trouble with the tax man. Media outlets are reporting, the MTV star owes the IRS $78,308.
Maci Bookout is mom to her adorable son, Bentley is currently unemployed. She spends her time taking care of her son and taking college courses.
According to InTouch Weekly, Bookout has been spending her money living the good life and flying back and forth to be with her boyfriend, Taylor McKinney, but now her bill has come due and she must find a way to make it right with the government.
“She’s in denial! She needs to find a way to pay back this money. She’s gotten herself into a lot of trouble. “She’s been telling people that she’s working on paying it back, but very little progress has been made.”
A second source dished:
“Luckily, Taylor is planning to move to Tennessee to live with Maci very soon, which will be good because it will take some of the financial load off of her.”
A copy of the federal tax lien against Bookout was published by the website and shows that the IRS has not received any payment from Maci since 2011 and the total amount due is $78,308.63. Wowzers! Maci’s friends are saying, she’s totally disregarding the problem. Apparently, Maci racked up the major tax debt by not allowing MTV to take the taxes out of her check automatically.
Maci is reportedly in contract negotiations with MTV. The network is seeking to recast her original “Teen Mom” cast members to bring back the series. One exception, NO Farrah Abraham! After Farrah’s sex tape scandal, the network does not want to be associated with the negative backlash.
