Keyshia Cole might want to think about hiring a new accountant because the singer was just hit with a hefty bill from Uncle Sam, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

According to a lien filed in Georgia on November 25, last year, the federal government claims Cole failed to pay taxes in 2009 – and owes a total of $162,158.93 to the IRS!

In 2009, Cole embarked on her very first headlining tour, A Different Me Tour, that featured opening acts TLC, Lil Kim and The-Dream, but the government appears the 32-year-old signer still hasn’t paid taxes on that profitable year.

The IRS notes on the lien that they will seize her property if she doesn’t pay off the debt.

“We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid,” the documents state.

“Therefore, there is a lien in favor of the United States on all property and rights to property belonging to this taxpayer for the amount of the taxes and additional penalties, interest and costs that may accrue.”

Cole, 32, is just the latest in a string of celebrities who have fallen afoul of the IRS.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported singer Lauryn Hill served three months in prison for not paying federal taxes on the $1.8 million she earned between 2005 and 2007.

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita is another celeb whose wallet took a hit from the government: After being slapped with a $338,337 lien in early 2013 and facing home foreclosure later that year, the reality star rang in 2014 with yet another pending request from the IRS for $85,127 in unpaid taxes.
