Nicholas Cage is once again back in the news for financial problems. The Ghost Rider actor just received a very large bill. The IRS is asking for $6.25 million in back taxes from his 2007 earnings.

Cage made a statement that over the life of his career; he has paid at least $70 million in taxes. He went on to say he is working with new business management, which should help this actor finally pay off his debt.

In 2009, Cage’s properties had tax liens placed on them by the government. He ended up foreclosing on four of his residences. Two of those properties were in New Orleans then the other two were Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

With the recent payment on his taxes, this should help him get back in the clear. Finally, he is getting some good reviews in life unlike the Ghost Rider sequel.
