Soulja BoyDays after making headlines for the rumored purchase of a $55 million private jet, which has been revealed as an elaborate lie, news has surfaced of Soulja Boy's problems with the IRS.

According to Radar Online, the 21-year-old rapper owes Uncle Same more than $26,000 in back taxes.

Documents obtained by Radar show that State of California filed a $26,805 tax lien against Soulja Boy in late March; while he also owed the State of Mississippi $3,571 in back taxes, but paid the full amount just last week on July 22, 2011.

Beyond unpaid taxes, his home in Georgia was foreclosed on last year, reports The Detroit News' Tax Watchdog blog.

Soulja Boy made Forbes' "Hip-Hop Cash Kings" of 2010, coming in at #18 with a reported $7 million in earnings from touring and ringtone downloads.

The rapper has not commented on the tax situation.
