According to the lawsuit, Tucker owes taxes related to unreported returns dating back to 2002.

The court documents also state that Tucker, 50, defaulted on his debt three times by failing to pay monthly installment agreements.

The lawsuit alleges that during four separate years, Tucker reported his income and paid significantly less to the IRS than he actually owed.

The IRS states that the total amount owed may increase significantly, “Since the assessment dates described above, interest, fines and statutory surcharges have accrued and will continue to accrue as required by law.”
