Lindsay Lohan is accustomed to getting special treatment in court, so you can understand her surprise upon discovering that another branch of the government expects her to behave like a person who didn't make one awesome movie back in 2004. Lindsay didn't bother to pay her income tax in 2009, and now the IRS is demanding that she hand over $93,000. To be precise, a lien has been filed against Lindsay for $93,701.57, and if she doesn't pay up the government could go after her home, cars, and bank accounts. Unfortunately, Lindsay can't even pull a Nick Cage and start making any wacky film she's offered a role in, because Hollywood hasn't exactly been busting down her door. [TMZ]
