Girls Gone Wild boss Joe Francis has run into trouble with the law again – his production company allegedly owes more than $113,000 to the government in unpaid taxes.
Authorities at the Internal Revenue Service filed a $113,128 lien against the soft-core porn director’s Mantra Films, the parent company of Girls Gone Wild, at the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds in November.

The demand is for delinquent federal taxes from 2003, according to The Detroit News.

The filmmaker’s woes continue to mount – last week, he was indicted by a grand jury over the $2 million he allegedly owes to Las Vegas casino boss Steve Wynn, who has charged Francis with felony theft and fraud.
