Archives For the dream

I stopped by WBRE’s “PA Live!” for my weekly segment, “The Ralphie Report.” This week, I chatted about The Dream’s run-in with the State of Georgia regarding taxes that were allegedly not paid. Also covered: Jay-Z and Beyonce’s new daughter, and the season premiere of “American Idol.”


TMZ reports that The Dream, a big time producer behind such hits as Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” recently had a state tax lien filed against him by Georgia for $117,401. If he had initially paid his taxes, he would’ve owed almost half of that. But since 2007, penalities and interest have accrued on the outstanding debt.

New York-based tax practitioner David Selig isn’t completely buying the story – noting that no one, not even state governments, are perfect. Selig believes it would be in Dream’s best interest to hire representation and make sure that in fact, he did owe the money that Georgia says it’s due.
