Pamela Anderson and Lionel Richie owe the government money.

California tax authorities have put Anderson on the latest list of the state’s biggest income-tax delinquents. The Franchise Tax Board said the former “Baywatch” star owes $524,241 in state income taxes.

Meanwhile, E! Online reports that Richie, a music legend, owes the federal government $1.1 million in unpaid taxes and that a lien has been issued warning that the singers’ assets may be seized if he doesn’t pay up in a timely manner.

A message seeking comments from Richie’s publicist wasn’t immediately returned Saturday.

A call to Anderson’s tax attorney, Robert Leonard, wasn’t immediately returned.

Other notable names on California’s tax-delinquent list include CNET co-founder Halsey Minor and Joe Francis, the founder of the “Girls Gone Wild” video empire.
