Football great Bernie Kosar pays tax lien

Bernie Kosar, the former National Football League quarterback, says he has paid the $228,806.21 lien the IRS placed on him for income taxed owed for 2006, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Miami Herald had reported Kosar was behind on property tax for 2007, failing to pay $52,724.95 as of March 31, owing $59,881.49 with penalties, interest, and other charges.

As a player for the Browns, Kosar helped guide the team to three AFC Championship games. He also played with the Cowboys, and the Dolphins. But Kosar is also known for his prowess off the field as a developer, restaurant owner, and president of an Arena Football team.

He told the Miami Herald the bills had fallen through the cracks, he had just learned of them, and he would make good on them. His divorce from wife Babette was final in December and some of the notices were mailed to his old address.
