Erika Jayne can’t escape her ongoing legal troubles.
Attorney Ronald Richards, who is Erika’s biggest fan, reveals that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills owes over $2 million in outstanding taxes to the state of California.
“California Franchise Tax Board issues tax lien for $2,777,343.23 against Erika Girardi, @erikajayne. This is for her 2019 taxes only. At what point does she accept culpability here? She has to pay taxes on her income like all Americans,” Richards tweeted on December 1.
Richards included a copy of the Notice of Tax Lien filed against Erika on October 17, 2022. The tax lien also includes Erika’s estranged husband, Tom Girardi.
“These are personal taxes for 2019. This is a recorded tax lien,” Richards noted to Erika’s supporters, who claimed the attorney was singling out Erika.
One fan noted: “I see 2 names on this Lien. Not just Erika. How does it work?” to which another fan replied, “1 still has an income to go after. The other is in a home.”
Another fan shared: “You can’t claim the money without claiming the debt,” while sharing an expert from Erika’s own book that noted Tom’s money was her money because the IRS tells her so.
