R&B crooner R. Kelly (pictured) had better “step in the name of the IRS” quickly!  The feds are after the performer because they claim he owes them a whopping $4.8 million in back taxes, according to TMZ.

Kelly, whose actual name is Robert Kelly, has reportedly been delinquent in filing his taxes since 2005.  He has neglected to pay the following tax bills for the allotted years:

2006 – $710,520.51
2007 – $376,180.11
2008 – $1,122,694.90
2009 – $173,815.18
2010 – $992,495.24

The total amount of monies reportedly owed to the Uncle Sam is $4,848,072.71.

This latest money woe is not the first time the mega-hit-maker has had to deal with a major debt.

Watch R. Kelly’s foreclosure on video here:

Nearly a year ago, it was reported that a foreclosure action was filed against Kelly who owns a Chicago 11,140-square-foot mansion.  In March of 1999, J.P. Morgan reportedly gave R. Kelly a $3.5-million mortgage, and in a court filing last year in June, the bank said it was still owed more than $2.9 million and that the singer had not made one single payment in a year’s time.  It was also alleged that he owed more than $100,000 in property taxes on the home at the time.

R. Kelly’s rep is trying to calm the hoopla surrounding his latest financial pickle by stating, “R. Kelly is in the process of working everything out with the government and is confident that all his obligations will be satisfied.”

Kelly, you can’t stay “trapped in a closet” for too much longer because the feds don’t play!
