“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Jacqueline Laurita made headlines last year because of her owing lots of money to the government. Apparently, they modified their mortgage to suit the changes in their finances, but that may not have been enough. In fact, it sounds like they could be owing much more than expected. According to a new Radar Online report published on Jan. 16, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Jacqueline Laurita has revealed that she is moving from New Jersey and now the truth may be out as to why.

About a year ago, Jacqueline and her husband faced a foreclosure because they owed $338,337 in lien. Recently, the couple was slapped with yet another amount from the IRS: $85,127 in unpaid taxes. Apparently, this amount was actually filed back in August of last year. So, what’s a couple to do?

They recently put their home on the market, so maybe they are trying to sell it to get a full value from the home. The house is listed for $2.85 million and the couple lived in the home for almost three years. Jacqueline hasn’t spoken out about this new money issue, but she did write a statement when the original amount was slapped on them last year.

“The $340k was from a tax audit in 2006, in which about 1/2 of that was added interest,” she wrote. “We have been disputing this because we didn’t think it was fair to pay so much interest on something we didn’t even know we owed until recently. The IRS is currently working with us to lower the amount owed and once that new amount is decided, we will, of course, pay that amount. We are good people doing the right thing.”

Do you think the amount owed is too much for them?
