Report: Floyd Mayweather pays off $22 million tax lien
Floyd Mayweather Jr has put some of his earnings from the Conor McGregor fight to good use.
According to The Blast, Mayweather has paid off his $22.2 million tax lien using his McGregor earnings.
Reports this summer said federal tax liens filed in April showed Mayweather owed $22.2 million in back taxes for 2015. Mayweather in July filed for a temporary reprieve because he was set to make hundreds of millions in August after his fight with McGregor.
The Blast says a release was filed by the government last month.
Mayweather has dealt with previous issues with the IRS in the past. McGregor even recently said he thought Mayweather’s spending habits would result in the boxer needing to fight him again to make more money.
Though Mayweather used a chunk of his money to pay off his debt to the IRS, he also used some of it for pleasure, as he also recently bought a $26 million mansion in Beverly Hills.
