Chris Tucker has amassed an IRS bill of more than $14 million in unpaid taxes, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

The actor – who celebrated his 43rd birthday last Sunday – was recently slapped with a tax lien of $2.5 million, raising his debt from almost $12 million to $14,068,047.

A representative for the actor revealed to the entertainment site the Rush Hour actor had settled with the government agency last Friday, though did not divulge if the comedian had paid in full or opted for an installment plan.

The lien of nearly $2.5 million stems from unpaid taxes in 2008 and 2010, although the actor is still in the red from 2001, the website adds.

In 2013, the website reported the comedian had made a payment of $985,028,988 towards his debt, which at the time totalled $12 million.
