O.J. Simpson's taxes are overdue, and the IRS is looking for nearly $180,000 from the fallen football star. Unfortunately for the convicted felon, he is still cooling his heels in a Nevada prison for " ... kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges from a 2007 Las Vegas incident," according to TMZ. As if that wasn't bad enough for the accused killer, who was found not guilty of murdering ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994, the bank foreclosed on his Florida home and he owes millions of dollars to the Brown and Goldman families stemming from a wrongful death civil suit he lost in 1997.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, O.J. Simpson has a net worth of $750,000. If that figure is accurate, then he should have little difficulty paying the $179,435.07 that he allegedly owes to the IRS. His federal tax debt accumulated from the years 2007 through 2010, years that he spent incarcerated in the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada.

O.J. Simpson's taxes are apparently not a top priority for the 65-year-old former athlete, actor and television producer. He is serving a minimum nine years without parole out of a thirty-three year sentence. However, there may be some good news for the athlete. According to USA Today, a Nevada judge agreed on Oct. 19, 2012 to " ... reopen the armed robbery and kidnapping case against O.J. Simpson to determine if the former football star was so badly represented by his lawyers that he should be freed from prison and get another trial."
