IRS says Brent Grimes owes $191,471 in taxes

Cornerback Brent Grimes signed a two-year deal with the Buccaneers earlier this year, but a chunk of the money that’s supposed to be headed his way may need to be redirected to the tax man.

Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports that Grimes, who played three years with the Dolphins before being released this offseason, owes $191,471 to the Internal Revenue Service. The information comes from a lien filed in Broward County on a Davie, Florida home owned by Grimes and his wife Miko.

According to the lien, the Grimes family owes money dating back to 2014 and the IRS has “made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid.”

Those who have followed Grimes’ career know that Miko has never shied away from using social media to take on those she feels are critical of her husband, his teammates or anyone else that might fall into the crosshairs. Her Twitter account is protected from public view, but Deadspin shares a response to Beasley — “my husband said since ur obsessed with me u can come over and eat my a– while im in town on the bye week” — that suggests things haven’t changed since his move to Tampa.

  3. kurdishpats1 says: Oct 14, 2016 9:10 AM

    Can’t wait to see what his wife tweets about this.

  4. 8drinkminimum says: Oct 14, 2016 9:15 AM

    Let Miko “work the corner” until the debt is paid.

    This girl may be a gutter mouth but Id totally take her up on that offer! She is HOT!

  6. kane337 says: Oct 14, 2016 9:17 AM

    That woman has serious issues.

  7. thelastwordyaheard says: Oct 14, 2016 9:19 AM

    why can’t she get struck by lightning ..or an 18-wheeler?

    Stay classy, Miko!

  9. kh221 says: Oct 14, 2016 9:21 AM

    Such a lovely woman, he’s truly a blessed man

  10. sgordon909usdm419 says: Oct 14, 2016 9:22 AM

    Watch out, his wife might start tweeting @IRS

  11. riflemanlax says: Oct 14, 2016 9:26 AM

    Can’t wait to hear Miko’s response…

  12. stoolerz says: Oct 14, 2016 9:28 AM

    Sorry Brent, your pet pig is not deductible.

  13. joetoronto says: Oct 14, 2016 9:32 AM

    I’m sure his wife will smooth things over with the IRS.

    I’ve met both of them. He’s nice, quiet. She’s nice in person, nothing at all what she’s like online. Can’t say for sure but he’s been making millions for years and if this only goes back to 2014 I’d bet it’s an accountant error, not a pattern. If they find others from earlier years or if they did it again in 2015, different story. But my guess is that someone goofed and it’s a one-off.

  16. hehateme2 says: Oct 14, 2016 9:43 AM

    As Miko wears the pants in that family this probably is all on her.

  17. harrisonhits2 says: Oct 14, 2016 9:43 AM

    Something tells me Miko was in charge of getting taxes done and she banked that 191k

  18. riraider says: Oct 14, 2016 9:51 AM

    Death & Taxes!

  19. weepingjebus says: Oct 14, 2016 9:52 AM

    Probably why Grimey lives above a bowling alley and below another bowling alley.

  20. xavier179 says: Oct 14, 2016 9:54 AM

    A lovely woman indeed.

  21. digitalsasquatch says: Oct 14, 2016 9:57 AM

    …such a delicate flower. Tell me you wouldn’t love to see The Donald try to put a grab on anything of hers!

    he’s probably broke, and cant pay it.

  24. scotthochsdramaticweightgain1 says: Oct 14, 2016 10:01 AM

    Maybe he could sell his Snapperhead Wife to raise some cash. I mean, she’s probably worth $17.50 on the open market.

    Brent Grimes > Richard Sherman
    John Kuhn > Mark Ingram and Eddie Lacy
    Shippensburg > Alabama and Stanford at combined optimal power, both in football and academics

    And none of those are even close. Deal with it.

  26. jag1959 says: Oct 14, 2016 10:13 AM

    Miko…the gift that keeps on giving

  27. RegisHawk says: Oct 14, 2016 10:17 AM

    I’m thinking you probably don’t want to invite the IRS up your a$$…

  28. beachsidejames says: Oct 14, 2016 10:18 AM

    Miko can’t blame this on Tannehill

  29. exinsidetrader says: Oct 14, 2016 10:21 AM

    He was doing the Administration a favor by not paying as they would have just borrowed 150% against it and been deeper in the hole

  30. beerbudsnbevo says: Oct 14, 2016 10:22 AM

    In all fairness, since all of the IRS Executives were allowed to plead the 5th and walk away from corruption without being held accountable, shouldn’t the Grimes family have the same opportunity?

    Our government is so corrupt….

  31. Della Street says: Oct 14, 2016 10:35 AM

    Ghetto trash.

  32. cyberbucs says: Oct 14, 2016 10:39 AM

    Staying with FOOTBALL, Grimes made a heck of an interception Monday Night in the end zone late in the game that led to the Bucs win.

  33. ratsfoiledagain says: Oct 14, 2016 10:54 AM

    Maybe I’m wrong, but isn’t that private information the IRS is giving out?

  34. grumpysal says: Oct 14, 2016 11:09 AM

    Nope, the lien is public and the local newspaper is the one who found it and reported on it, not the IRS.

  35. jimmyjohns01 says: Oct 14, 2016 11:46 AM

    If everyone is always complaining about bringing politics into football, why are we so concerned about their financial situation?

  36. eojtrid says: Oct 14, 2016 11:48 AM

    Miko…meet the man.

  37. icebergsimpson says: Oct 14, 2016 11:53 AM

    He must be hanging out with the Barca superstars that are Messi and Neymar…

  38. ddawatson says: Oct 14, 2016 11:59 AM

    She’s a treasure….she should be buried.

  39. kneedragr says: Oct 14, 2016 12:05 PM

    Just tell me where Miko and I will be there with the jelly!

  40. Grulks says: Oct 14, 2016 1:35 PM

    Miko makes me laugh. She is always tweeting about “us” and “we” when she is talking about her husband. Last I checked, Miko hasnt done anything except marry a NFL player.

    Call me a cynic, but I always felt that your spouse should complement who, make you a better person, as opposed to being a noisy windbag with a potty mouth who is clearly riding along on your accomplishments.

    And this all occurs on what alternate universe?

    Personally, I think anyone here making assumptions is overstepping. Without true knowledge of the situation, we don’t know what the cause was…and frankly, it is none of our business.
