VANDERPUMP Rules’ fired star, Jax Taylor, has “failed to pay off his $1.2M tax debt” as the Bravo show’s new season premieres.
All'inizio di quest'anno, The Sun exclusively revealed that the ex TV personality owed over a million dollars from several outstanding tax liens after just purchasing a $2M Los Angeles home with wife Brittany Cartwright.
More than six months later, The Sun has confirmed with both the California State Tax Board and officials with the IRS that Jax, 42, has still not paid off his debts.
According to the court records the Michigan native continues to owe $316,571 for the period of 2018-2019 to the state.
That specific tax lien is his most recent – having just been filed on March 10 di quest'anno – and notes interest and fees will continue to accrue until the outstanding balance is paid.
The ex bartender – il cui vero nome è Jason Michael Cauchi – has an unpaid history that goes all the way back to 2014 – where he also owes nearly $23,000 from the tax period ending that year.
A partire dal 2018, il VPR alum continues to have another $198,190 in federal taxes added to his outstanding balance.
As of December 2019 – when Jax and Brittany closed the deal on their pricey California home – the controversial figure had another $646,867 added to his unpaid federal taxes.

Added together, Jax owes the IRS $868,035 and combined with state dues, needs to pay up $1.2 million all together.
The longer he waits to pay off Uncle Sam, the more interest that will accrue to the already large amount.
Days after The Sun first posted Jax’s tax issues, he attempted to explain the trouble and downsize the problem: “Oh yeah, I had a bad tax situation. I had a bad bookkeeper. We all get bad bookkeepers.
“I suggest researching your bookkeeper when you pay your taxes because I got f*cked.”
Ha aggiunto: “I’m fixing it. It’s not a big deal.”
A rep for Jax did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
THE PRICE HE PAID…
In dicembre, Bravo announced Jax and wife, Bretagna, would not return to Vanderpump Rules and neither have appeared to land another gig since.
Jax’s comments cost him a lot – as it was reported he was the highest-paid earner on the VPR cast with an alleged salary of $25,000 per episode.
As the season typically consists of 24 Episodi, this would mean the controversial star is potentially losing out on more than $600,000 per anno.
Brittany and Jax’s money woes come as the couple – who wed in a tumultuous TV wedding last year – as they welcomed their first child together this Summer.
They also recently put down a hefty amount of money on a $1.9M modern farmhouse just outside of Los Angeles in the upscale Valley Glen area.
Bravolebrity Jax was accused of “racist and transphobic” comments as fans quickly called for his firing – with even friend Lance Bass agreeing he should be off the show.
Nel frattempo, Faith Stowers accused her former costars Stassi and Kristen of reporting her to the police for a crime she did not commit in 2018.
Jax had also tweeted of Faith al tempo: “She’s wanted by the police for grand theft auto and ‘awol’ from military, bad idea to be on a reality show dude. Someone’s going to jail.”
Next week will mark the first time VPR makes it comeback since letting go of several of its cast members.
tuttavia, fan-favorites including Tom Sandoval, 38, Tom Schwartz & wife Katie Maloney, James Kennedy, Lala Kent, Scheana Shay, 36, and her fiance, Brock Davies, will return.
Vanderpump Rules returns to Bravo on Tuesday September 28 at 9pm ET.
