According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, the back taxes are from Hammer’s most financially troubled years — 1996 and 1997 — and Uncle Sam wants the money back stat, demanding any concert earnings Hammer makes be automatically redirected into the government’s pocket.
Hammer — real name Stanley Burrell — filed for bankruptcy in 1996, after burying himself in $13 million of debt.
Calls to Hammer’s reps weren’t returned.
