The tax man cometh.
Weeks before he is set to walk down the aisle, Vanderpump Rules resident love rat, Jax Taylor, was hit with an $80,000 state tax lien, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned.
The bad boy owes a whopping $80,424 to the State of California, the Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder Clerk of Court confirmed to Radar.
The lien was placed against Taylor, 39, on March 27, 2019 according to records confirmed by the clerk.
On the Vanderpump Rules reunion part two, Andy Cohen congratulated Taylor and his fiancée, Brittany Cartwright, on purchasing their first home just a few blocks from Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval’s $2.075 million Valley Village home.
Taylor’s over-the-top wedding was approaching amid his money woes, and Cartwright, 30, had a $15,000 engagement party to plan for the season finale of the show.
Cartwright threw an elaborate Great Gatsby-style shower back in her home state of Kentucky this April after her fiancé was hit with the tax lien. The couple planned to get married at a castle in the area and were sparing no expense for their lavish nuptials.
Taylor is reportedly the highest paid cast member on Vanderpump Rules, pulling in $25,000 per episode, or a stunning $600,000 a season to cheat on his girlfriend and then apologize for it and end up proposing to her.
Days after the tax lien was filed against Taylor for $80,000 he appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, and the host tried to offer him advice about saving money.
“We’re very smart,” Taylor told Cohen, 50, despite his outstanding tax lien.
“You might want to talk some of the other cast members on this, not me. I’m good. I’m frugal. My dad taught me well,” he continued.
The jeweler who made Cartwright’s $70,000 engagement ring gushed over Taylor forking out big bucks on the 3.14 carat diamond.
“It features a double diamond halo, representing one for Brittany and one for Jax. Jax certainly spared no expense, choosing a certified white diamond over three carats,” jeweler Kyle Chan told Bravo about the bling.
