Lindsey Vonn pays $1.7M in owed taxes
DENVER (AP) — Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn says she has paid off more than $1.7 million she owed in back taxes.
According to public records obtained through the Elko County recorder's office in Nevada, the IRS hit the reigning overall World Cup champion and her estranged husband with a tax lien earlier this month. The Detroit News first reported on the tax lien.
Vonn announced on her Facebook page that she's "disappointed with this situation" and has done "everything in my power to settle it immediately."
Her spokesman, Lewis Kay, confirmed Monday she has settled the tax issue.
In November, Vonn separated from Thomas Vonn, her husband of four years and her personal coach.
Lindsey Vonn recaptured the overall title this season by amassing 1,980 points, the most ever by a female skier.
