Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss has been slapped with a second federal tax lien in a matter of months.
According to court records obtained by Radar, the Bravo star’s company Burruss Tucker Restaurant Group LLC is accused of owing $5,156.50 in back taxes.
The lien, filed by the Internal Revenue Service, accuses Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker of refusing to pay up on the money owed for their 2021 bill.
Kandi and Todd own two restaurants in Atlanta named Old Lady Gang and Blaze.
The lien appears to be connected to their business taxes which are due quarterly. In July, the RHOA star was hit with a separate lien over a 2020 bill. The IRS said her company owed $15,812.52 for the year.
The grand total for tax debt comes to $20,969.02. Both liens remain active and have yet to be settled with Uncle Sam.
Kandi’s restaurants are also dealing with issues behind the scenes. Blaze has struggled to pass health inspections and currently has a C rating.
Back in May, the restaurant was forced to temporarily shut down after an inspector found multiple code violations.
The report noted the inspector, "Observed hot potentially hazardous food received at less than 135 degrees," expired food being used, and food not being properly labeled.
“Food handler touched raw oysters and raw salmon and then proceeded to handle ready to eat leafy greens with the same gloves on improperly. Moving from raw food to ready-to-eat foods is a source of cross contamination," the inspector wrote.
The score Blaze received before it shut down was a B.
Old Lady Gang isn't faring much better. The restaurant has a C rating and hasn't received an A rating since February. The biggest violation during the inspection was food not being kept at the proper temperature.
Kandi has not spoken publicly about her restaurant's issues.
