Madonna Files $2.5 Million Suit Over Taxes

No one is immune to the sting of taxes... not even Madonna.

According to the Associated Press, the singer has filed a $2.5 million lawsuit against her former financial advisers claiming they are responsible for $2 million in state taxes she had to shell out to New York state.

Madonna, who also heads up Maverick Records, reportedly filed the suit against Padell, Nadell, Fine, Weinberger & Co. on Tuesday and charges the firm with malpractice and breach of contract.

The singer, her personal corporation, and Maverick are reportedly named as the suit's plaintiffs, and are seeking $2 million in compensatory damages and $500,000 in punitive damages according to the AP.

Speaking with the news agency, the firm's Bert Padell said that the suit was sparked after Madonna claimed herself as a California resident on her 1992 taxes. Padell told the AP that New York disagreed, and came calling to the tune of $2 million.

Madonna reportedly fired the firm in 1996.
