The federal government is on to R. Kelly for failing to pay a whopping $4.8 million in back taxes.

According to documents filed by the IRS, Kelly owes money on his taxes going way back to 2005. It breaks down like this,

2005 – $1,472,366.77
2006 – $710,520.51
2007 – $376,180.11
2008 – $1,122,694.90
2009 – $173,815.18
2010 – $992,495.24

for a total of $4,848,072.71.

Being trapped in the closet probably won’t cut it as an excuse.

A rep for Kelly tells sources, “R. Kelly is in the process of working everything out with the government and is confident that all his obligations will be satisfied.”
