Courtney Love has been hit with a tax bill of over $300,000.

The 49-year-old star was a handed a $319,749 lien last month for the tax period ending in 2012, according to IRS filings seen by the New York Post newspaper.

The blonde rocker - who has admitted to having financial difficulties in the past - last year received a tax bill for $266,861, which included unpaid taxes from 2009 and 2011 and she also had a lien filed against her in 2009 for money she owed in 2007 but is reported to have paid it off.

And on Tuesday (08.04.14) Courtney was also ordered by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to pay fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir, who claims she was defamed by the 'Malibu' hitmaker on Twitter, $96,000 as after originally being ordered to pay her $450,000 she only paid approximately $350,000.

The 'Celebrity Skin' hitmaker - who was married to the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - earns the majority of her money through royalties and other revenue's from Kurt's estate, as well as from her acting career and touring with her band Hole.

In a previous interview, Courtney - who claims she's been sober since 2007 - admitted that her and Kurt has struggled with money issues before his suicide in 1994.

She said: ''We could never find our money ... Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54 million?''

Courtney and Kurt's daughter Frances Bean Cobain took control of End of Music LLC, which earns money from Kurt's publicity rights, in 2012.
