TMZ reports that the State of New York has filed a tax lien against Plaxico Burress for more than $59,000.

According to legal docs, Burress didn’t quite pay all his personal income tax for the year 2007 and now the Empire State is looking to collect on the $59,241 he owes.

Burress was the top receiver for the NY Giants and under a 6-year $25-million contract … but a stint behind bars after a gun charge put an end to all that. If he doesn’t cough up the cash, the state can seize his assets.

Burress is a free agent after playing for the New York Jets last season. Read the full story at TMZ
