Robert De Niro
Robert De Niro has been hit with a $6.4 million tax lien.
According to New York City documents acquired by The Smoking Gun website, the 71-year-old actor has been issued with the bill totalling of $6,410,449.20 by the IRS.
The 'Raging Bull' star - who has an estimated fortune of over $200 million - received the lien at his Tribeca address on Hudson St which he is said to have bought as an investment property.
The Academy Award winner - who also has property in London, LA and restaurants Nobu and the TriBeCa Grill, as well as The Greenwich Hotel in the area - was notified of the lien, which is issued to a property to secure the payment of taxes or can be imposed following the failure to pay income or other taxes, after it was assessed by the city Department of Finance in November.
Robert and his wife Grace Hightower live close by the house having moved out of their rental property in West Village and into a five-bedroom, $125,000-a-month apartment - one of the most expensive rental apartments in New York - last year.
The couple had previously been left homeless after a fire ripped through their flat in 2012.
The pricey pad is made up of two condo apartments which have been combined into one and were previously rented for $70,000 per month by Cameron Diaz's ex, New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez, and investor Henry Silverman.
