Popular League of Legends broadcaster, and has maintained a steady audience since as a variety streamer.
In her June 6 stream, Kaceytron revealed that she felt the brunt of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), after falling behind on her taxes, with the government bureau emptying her bank account in the process.[ad name=”article2″]
“I file my taxes, I do,” the streamer told her audience. “No, I didn’t get audited. People weren’t reporting me for not claiming money. I always claim money, I always have. I wasn’t tax evading, I filed my taxes, I just haven’t paid my taxes.”
“Like many fucking people, I am behind on my taxes. There are plenty of other streamers this could happen to. So, the IRS garnished all of the money in my account, and I have no money. I have about $25 to my name right now.”
Kaceytron then shocked her viewers by revealing how much she owed, and how much the IRS had already taken from her.
The streamer revealed: “I owe about $20,000 in taxes, and they took all the money that was in my bank account, which is about $9,000. This isn’t just money I had to fuck around with, this was my safety net money because what I do on Twitch is very risky.”
“I don’t if my job is going to be here tomorrow, I don’t know if I’ll be able to continue to make money.”
Losing such a massive amount of money is a big hit to Kaceytron, and although she admits it was a major blow, she doesn’t intend to wallow and is confident things will turn out okay.
“You know, that was a big blow,” concluded the Twitch streamer. “But it’s going to be fine. I’m fine. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t upset about it, but I can still joke about it.”
Kaceytron confirmed that she is currently unsure as to how she will pay off the outstanding taxes owed to the IRS< but intends to meet with a tax attorney in the near future in the hopes of setting up a payment plan to clear the debt.
