U.S. Files Tax Suit Against Paycheck

The U.S. attorney’s office filed a civil complaint today to collect more than $1.6 million in unpaid federal tax assessments against imprisoned country music singer Johnny Paycheck.

The government’s complaint alleges unpaid tax assessments, including accrued penalties and interest, for the years 1980, 1981 and 1982.

Paycheck, 52, whose real name is Donald Lytle, was convicted last year of aggravated assault and tampering with evidence in connection with a barroom shooting.

Best known for his hit song “Take This Job and Shove It,” Paycheck is serving a 7- to 9 1/2-year sentence at the Madison Correctional Institution.
