Jersey Shore star Mike Sorrentino, 39, was hit by the IRS tax lien in April. His federal tax debts span multiple years from 2010 to 2016, excluding 2014. A New Jersey clerk confirmed that the lien is open and pending with the IRS totaling $2.3 million . Mike’s publicist Robyn Bordes told The Sun: “Michael Sorrentino has worked diligently to meet his current and past tax obligations and will continue to do so.”
The MTV star’s tax troubles began in 2014 when Sorrentino was arrested along with his brother Marc Sorrentino and charged with multiple tax offenses in 2014 related to nearly $9 million in income. Sorrentino pleaded guilty in January to one count of tax evasion on approximately $123,000 in income. Marc Sorrentino admitted helping to file a fraudulent tax return and was sentenced to two years in prison with one year’s supervised release in the same hearing before US District Judge Susan Wigenton.

According to Asbury Park Press, Sorrentino’s opioid addiction began while he was in college. “I didn’t realize I had an obsessive personality,” Sorrentino said in a 2018 interview with the New Jersey newspaper. “And everything I did had to be done to the maximum. And I walked this path for many years. In March 2012, Sorrentino began his treatment program to treat his addiction issues and took a shot of naltrexone, a once-monthly dose, to block the effects of opioids.
