This Week's IRS "Hall of Shame" Inductee: Rubben Studdard

Ruben Studdard, the season two "American Idol" winner, faces state and federal property liens after allegedly not paying close to $200,000 in taxes, reported.

Studdard, who is without a current record deal, owes $21,730 in state income taxes and $171,920 in unpaid income taxes to the federal government, according to the report. The story cites a lien filed in Jefferson County, Colorado Circuit Court.

A majority of the unpaid taxes are from 2003 — the same year Studdard won "American Idol." (Well what a nice coincidence!)

The state liens were filed July 25, and the federal ones were filed in May.
