Another day, another HUGE financial problem for Terrell Owens ... this time, the former NFL superstar has been hit with a MASSIVE tax bill for allegedly failing to pony up nearly $250k in 2012. According to official docs, the federal government claims Owens is in the hole to the tune of $244,391.52 for unpaid income tax from 2012.
Of course, that was the year Owens signed a deal for a tryout with the Seattle Seahawks ... but was cut after only raking in $4,300. It's unclear where Owens made the rest of his money that year. It's not the first time T.O.'s been accused of stiffing Uncle Sam -- he racked up a $430k debt from 2005 to 2009, but paid that lien off just last year.
We reached out to T.O.'s camp to see if he's handling this situation as well -- but so far, no word back.
When ballers like T.I. want to cut down their commute they do NOT carpool -- they just spend more cash on a new home ... closer to work. Genius. Atlanta sources tell TMZ ... Tip just leased a 4 BR, European estate in the exclusive Buckhead neighborhood -- even though he and his wife Tiny already have a house in A-Town.
We're told ... the rapper's real estate motivation is simple. The place is just two minutes from his studio -- erasing his usual 40 minute drive home after a night of recording. But check out the pics -- with a massive pool, outdoor kitchen, and entertainment area -- we doubt there will be a lot of sleep going down at this crash pad.
