Melissa Gilbert failed to pay $360G to IRS

'Little House on the Prairie' star on removing implants

 

The Internal Revenue Service says former "Little House on the Prairie" star Melissa Gilbert failed to pay more than $360,000 in federal income taxes.

The Detroit News reports the IRS filed a tax lien against the actress in February and details emerged after she recently announced that her family was moving from a rented home to another area home.

Gilbert blames the 2011-2013 tax debt on a stalled acting career, the economy and divorce. In a statement to the newspaper, she says that "like so many people across the nation, the recession hit me hard" and there was a "perfect storm of financial difficulty for me."

Gilbert, who played Laura Ingalls on "Little House on the Prairie," says she's negotiated a payment plan with the IRS.
