Gossip Extra has discovered that Prouty, who came out on MSNBC’s The Ed Show last night, owes the Internal Revenue Service a sizable tax bill — sizable for a catering company barkeep.

UPDATE: Authorities will not prosecute Prouty

The IRS slapped a tax lien on Prouty for unpaid income taxes in 2006, according to records, for a total $15,396.42! (see below)

Prouty has yet to settle the 7-year-old debt, according to Broward County archives.

Why wait for news: Register for the alerts

Back in October, Prouty was working at a $50,000 Romney fundraiser at the Boca Raton mansion of hedge fund manager Marc Leder when he turned on his camera while the candidate spoke.

The footage of Romney describing 47 percent of Americans as government freeloaders was partly credited, or blamed, for President Barack Obama‘s reelection.
