Every April 15th is nationally known as ‘Tax Day’. Although it’s not celebrated as a holiday, everyone who pays into the country knows this day personally and also knows that if you don’t want to owe Uncle Sam, you better file your taxes.
Sean Garrett, famous singer, songwriter and rapper has run into a problem with taxes stemming back as far as 2006. Tired of waiting, the Georgia Department of Revenue ordered BMI Collections to garnish the amount owed. BMI isn’t just some collection agency; it’s well-known for forcing the rich and famous pay their bills, especially those in the music industry such as Garrett.
Garrett is better known as a composer rather than a singer himself. He has produced hundreds of songs, including 17 songs that were number one on Billboard. Some songs include, Ciara’s “Goodies”, “Make Her Feel Good” with Mario, Nicki Minaj’s first single “Massive Attack” and even “Toy Soldier” with Britney Spears.
Due to an error done by one of his employees, Garrett owes a total of $732,553.57 in back taxes. Most would suffer a state of shock if they received a letter in the mail saying they owed even half this amount, however, creator of Usher’s, “Yeah!” already has a plan on how to handle it.
Sources who are close to Garrett have reported that after Garrett discovered the cause was due to an employee error, he was able to talk to BMI and is now taking the steps in order to fix the mistake without them going after his funds.
