Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss’ financial troubles are getting worse as the reality star and her husband are being hit with another federal tax lien.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker’s Burruss Tucker Restaurant Group LLC was slapped with paperwork by the IRS on November 17.
The lien claims the couple failed to pay a portion of their small business taxes. The document says they refused to pay $2,520 owed for the quarter.
The debt wouldn’t be a big deal if it wasn’t added on to 2 other liens filed against Kandi in the past 6 months.
In June, Kandi was accused of failing to pay $15,812.52 to the IRS. Two months later, Uncle Sam filed another lien over $5,156 owed for the quarter.
None of the liens have been released by the IRS which means they have yet to be paid off. The grand total for the tax debt comes to $23,488.52. Kandi has yet to publicly address the situation with her business.
Kandi and Todd run two ATL restaurants named Old Lady Gang and Blaze. For the past year the two spots have struggled to maintain a proper health score.
At one point, Blaze had to be temporarily shut down after failing a health inspection on May 19.
The health inspector didn't hold back in a scathing report submitted to the state. The official observed an employee working with raw food without washing their hands.
The report noted, “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 food was also not being properly stored at the correct temperatures. The report noted, “Observed that both prep coolers on the line across from the ovens have food that is out of temperature above 41F.”
Back in December, the Georgia Department of Public Health awarded Blaze a score of 88 and B grade. In September 2020, the restaurant received a 99 rating and A grade. It was last inspected on May 28 and received a C score.
Old Lady Gang has experienced its own set of issues.
