Sometime actress Pamela Anderson may consider heading back to work sooner than later: the former "Baywatch" star is in serious trouble with the IRS and has been hit with a double tax lien totaling over $300,000, according to TMZ. Different branches of the government filed the tax liens, the Daily Mail said.

The first tax lien was filed by the IRS and will set Anderson back $259,395.75. The State of California also hit the former "Dancing With The Stars" performer with a second tax lien, showing that Anderson owed $112,118.90 in back taxes to the state. The total for both debts comes out to over $370,000. Officials have also put a court order on her Malibu home to prevent her from selling it until the debts are paid back.

"I'm not trying to avoid any tax obligation," Anderson claimed, according to the Daily Mail.

She added: "Certain events occurred, outside of my control, which caused this temporary but embarrassing situation. All of my tax obligations will be resolved in the very near future."

Earlier this year Anderson was named among California's Top 500 Delinquent Tax Payers along with singer Lionel Richie.

Of course, everyone is wondering if Anderson will be able to foot the bill. The actress has mostly quit the spotlight in recent years; her only television appearance this year in the U.S. was on "RuPaul's Drag Race," for which she served as a guest judge, noted the Daily Mail. Anderson also appeared on two other shows in other countries, but both times she was making a guest appearance.

Anderson has worked in modeling since 1989. In addition to a popular role on "Home Improvement," she was also Playmate of the Month for Playboy's February 1990 issue.

Despite any signs of making an income, according to, Anderson is still pulling in enough annually to cover her debts. The site says the blonde beauty is worth over $5 million a year.

The tax debt is not Anderson's first. A year before her "Dancing With the Stars" debut she was hit with a tax lien of over $1.7 million, according to TMZ.

Anderson will likely try to begin paying off the mountain of debt as she is set to appear on the upcoming season of the BBC series "Dancing on Ice," a metaphor for the star's attempt to squirm out of paying taxes if there ever was one.

Anderson is just the latest celebrity to owe the IRS a surprising sum.

Lindsay Lohan's accounts were recently seized by the IRS in an effort to recover $233,904 in unpaid taxes from 2009 and 2011 and an unspecified amount from 2011, first reported. The IRS reportedly grew impatient with the sometime actress when she failed to pay her debt after earning a reported $2 million last year.

Gary Busey was struck hard a few weeks ago, too. Even after declaring bankruptcy, the "Silver Bullet" actor was still in massive debt. Busey no longer has to pay $57,303.63 worth of unpaid bills to a host of creditors, but he still owes the IRS $ 451,297.33 in back taxes, according to TMZ.
