Skier extraordinaire reportedly owes something close to $1.7 million in back taxes. Vonn is the skier who won a gold medal in the women’s downhill at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and most recently, her fourth World Cup title.
Her focus has been unshakable on the mountain, but her personal life has been filled with challenges. She is going through a divorce with her former coach, Thomas Vonn. The Detroit News is reporting a $1,705,437 delinquent federal tax lien against Lindsey and her husband Thomas.
Vonn emailed the Detrot News with the news that she “took immediate and deliberate steps to remedy the situation. I have made arrangements to pay in full the balance due”.
Vonn received more than $500,000 for winning the World Cup and receives sponsor dollars from Red Bull, Under Armour and Rolex.
