Russell Hantz didn't pay taxes ($43,422) on his prize money back in 2010, so in July 2012 he received a Federal Tax Lien against his mobile home in Dayton, Texas for failure to pay for his past income taxes.
He owes a total of $47500 in back taxes for the years 2009 and 2010. The poor little guy might have his trailer home taken away if he continues to default on his delinquent taxes owed! No wonder he's accepting grunt jobs as an oil tankerman again and begging fans to help him get back on Survivor
