(LOS ANGELES) — Nicolas Cage has paid off $6 million of his massive tax bill.
TMZ obtained a copy of the document showing the federal government released a lien against Cage after he paid the IRS $6,257,005 on Feb. 15. That was the balance of what he owed for the 2007 tax year. In late 2008, the federal government placed a tax lien on Cage’s real-estate holdings.
“Everybody makes mistakes. It’s part of being human,” Cage said on ABC’s Good Morning America last year. “Some people say you have to be a sinner before you can be a saint.”
Cage is only half way to solvency. The Ghost Rider actor has admitted to owing the IRS a total of $14 million and has said that he is taking steps to repay it, starting with switching business managers.
