MSNBC weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry had a particularly tough tax day-the anchor and her husband owe $70,000 in delinquent taxes, according to a report in the Winston Salem-Journal.
The IRS filed the notice on April 6th and filed a lien on the Perrys, the report said. Harris-Perry said she was aware of her debt, but not the tax lien.
