Lindsey Vonn owes $1,705,437 in back taxes to the federal government.
The IRS has filed a tax lien against Lindsey Vonn & her former husband Thomas Vonn.
Definition of a Tax Lien: A tax lien is a lien imposed by law upon a property to secure the payment of taxes. A tax lien may be imposed for delinquent taxes owed on real property or personal property, or as a result of failure to pay income taxes or other taxes. – wikipedia.org
This tax lien was filed on April 2nd, 2012 with the Elko County Recorder of Nevada.
This kinda sounds a bit crooked as there is no way Lindsey nor Thomas spend anytime in Elko, NV. The place is hideous, but Nevada is a known tax haven. People use Nevada residency to avoid income tax as Nevada has no individual income tax.
This tax lien states that Lindsey’s tax delinquency comes from a single year of earnings in the 2010 tax year. 2010 was the Whistler Olympic year where Lindsey won gold in Downhill and bronze in Super G.
Lindsey made $608,000 on the World Cup this winter. She also obviously has some insane sponsorship deals that pay her way more than what she earns on the World Cup.

“It is no secret that my last year off the mountain has been filled with many personal challenges. This matter was only recently brought to my attention, and I took immediate and deliberate steps to remedy the situation.” – Lindsey Vonn
