ROB HALFORD's IRS Troubles Make The News

The following information was originally published in Forbes magazine nearly a year ago, but we thought it was interesting enough to include here now:

His Next Hit: Taxing Machine

The Internal Revenue Service wants $567,813 in back taxes from British heavy-metal rocker Rob Halford, 49, former lead singer of JUDAS PRIEST. In a U.S. Tax Court lawsuit Halford admits spending most of 1994 to 1997 in the U.S., but says he maintained a home in Walsall, England, and under a U.S.-U.K. tax treaty wasn't a U.S. resident for tax purposes. His 1994 U.S. return declared a $2,213 loss the IRS says he really made $845,985. Halford, famously controversial for suggestive albums like Killing Machine, now tours the U.S. with a new group modestly named after himself. --Janet Novack
