Christie Brinkley To Pay $500,000 In Back Taxes She Owes Tomorrow

Remember that the Internal Revenue Service laid upon supermodel Christie Brinkley‘s doorstep late last week? Well, she’s not making a fuss about it and definitely not fighting it in court. Brinkley says she’s going to have the entirety of her debt paid off by tomorrow.

Page Six reports that Brinkley chalks up the whole, flagrant misunderstanding to an accounting error and says she’ll pay all $531,720 in back taxes she owes to the government by end of business Wednesday. So what caused the accounting error? Mom and Pops Brinkley, of course:

“I discovered the tax lien was the result of an error. My taxes will be paid in full by Dec. 7 … I regret not paying more attention to my accounting, but I have been, and remain focused on my whole family as both my parents navigate serious health issues.”

Our heart goes out to Brinkley — her father suffers from both scoliosis and Parkinson’s disease, and her mother was admitted to a hospital for unspecified emergency surgery in July. But when you’ve got as much wealth to manage — and as many problems to deal with — as Brinkley does, you might think there would be a person on your staff, say an accountant or a certified financial planner, who might speak up before you got over half a million dollars into tax debt.
