He’s got another “Situation.”
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino — who, in 2019, served time in federal prison for tax evasion — owes Uncle Sam $2.3 million in unpaid taxes over the course of five years.
Legal documents obtained Thursday by The Sun show that the 39-year-old “Jersey Shore” star’s debts to the IRS are from 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016.
He was hit with the tax lien in April, and a New Jersey clerk confirmed to the publication that it remains “open and outstanding.”
“Michael Sorrentino has been working diligently to comply with his current and past tax obligations, and he will continue to do so,” the MTV star’s publicist said in a statement.
After he and his brother pleaded guilty to filing falsified tax returns on nearly $9 million in January 2018, Sorrentino was handed an eight-month prison sentence in October of that year.
He reported to the Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in upstate New York in January 2019 and was released that September.
“We are elated to finally close this chapter of our life. Thank you to our family, friends and fans for the continuous love and support during this time. It brought us so much peace and comfort,” he and wife Lauren Sorrentino told Leak Herald at the time. “We look forward to continuing our life as husband and wife and working on baby situations!”
“We truly believe that the comeback is ALWAYS greater than the setback, and we can’t wait to show the world ours.”
Since then, Mike has become an outspoken advocate for Alcoholics Anonymous and welcomed 1-year-old son Romeo Reign Sorrentino.
