Al Pacino's Tax Lien Sleeps with the Fishes

California can cross one celebrity off its deadbeat list. Al Pacino was into the Golden State for $31,706.04 (knowing what's good for him, the Godfather did not forget the extra four cents). The taxes related income from 2009 and 2011 and were the subject of a lien filed last May.
In response, Pacino did something unusual. He simply . . . paid it. And on July 31, California lifted the lien.
This isn't Pacino's first go-round with tax debt. In 2011, the IRS "leaned" on him for $188,283.50 related to income from 2008 and 2009. In that instance, Pacino was part of a Ponzi scheme which also caught other celebrities in a costly tax net.
Pacino is famous for his gangster roles in The Godfather trilogy and Scarface.
