Lindsay Lohan took advantage of a generous gift from fellow actor Charlie Sheen, using Sheen’s check for $100,000 to help pay off a tax bill that had her in trouble with the IRS, TMZ.com reports.
Lohan paid off her 2009 bill for $93,701, the story reports. The website obtained an official IRS document indicating the debt was paid.
“Sources close to Lindsay tell us, she used Charlie’s generous check to cover the tab — and has already applied the remaining $6,300 to her 2010 tax bill for $140,203 (only $133,000 to go!!!),” TMZ reports. “According to sources, Lindsay’s still on the hook for her 2011 taxes too — but she’s actively trying to raise the money to get herself out of the red as soon as possible.”
Sheen reportedly made the donation to Lohan after hearing about her financial difficulties.
