Actress/singer Vanessa Williams is facing a hefty bill from U.S. authorities amid allegations she owes $370,000 (£217,647) in unpaid taxes.

Internal Revenue Service (Irs) officials issued the lien to the Ugly Betty beauty earlier this month (Aug14) in relation to an address mix-up on the star's 2011 tax return.

The documents were filed under her accountants' Manhattan address, even though she lives miles away, in the New York hamlet of Chappaqua, reports the New York Daily News.

Williams is the latest celebrity to be targeted by Irs bosses - singers Lionel Richie, Mary J. Blige and Courtney Love, actor Michael Madsen and rapper Flo Rida are among the more recent stars hit by the tax authorities.
