IRS ‘Can Touch This’ in M.C. Hammer Bankruptcy Case

Posted on December 30, 2015

The rap artist M.C. Hammer, famous for songs that include U Can’t Touch This, and his wife had filed bankruptcy some time ago.

They had many creditors, including the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS filed a claim in the bankruptcy that failed to include taxes.  Hammer, legally known as Stanley Burrell, argued that the IRS was barred from collecting his tax debt because of its failure to include taxes on its bankruptcy claim.

The court held in favor of the IRS, finding that its failure to include taxes on Hammer’s bankruptcy claim did not preclude it from collecting the tax liability from him.

Apparently, the IRS “Can Touch This!”  If you owe money to the IRS, contact us, we can help.
