Val Kilmer Rings In New Year By Owing Half Million Dollars In Taxes

val-kilmer_120.jpgThe Christmas season may be over, but erstwhile Iceman Val Kilmer still has some giving to do. US Weekly is reporting that the one-time Batman owes the federal government nearly $500,000 in unpaid taxes. The feds have put a lien on Kilmer's New Mexico ranch, which he has been struggling to sell since 2009 -- with a starting price of $33 million, Val's slashed the price to an affordable $18.5 million. Combined with Kilmer's last brush with the gub'mint -- wherein he had to apologize for saying Santa Fe is filled with drunks and calling his county the "homicide capital of the Southwest" -- perhaps we'll see him at a Tea Party rally sometime soon?[USWeekly]
