Pamela Anderson is working on taking care of her nearly half a million-dollar tax bill.

On Thursday night – April 15, tax day, in fact – Pamela Tweeted that her hefty bill wasn’t planned.

“I’m not trying to avoid any tax obligation,” she Tweeted. “Certain events occurred, outside of my control which caused this temporary but embarrassing situation. All of my tax obligations will be resolved in the very near future.Love Pamela”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, earlier this week, California officials said the “Dancing with the Stars” beauty owed $493,000 in personal income tax. She was named on an annual list of delinquent taxpayers, which was released on Monday.

Pamela is currently competing on ABC’s “DWTS” with partner Damian Whitewood. She will next hit the ballroom on Monday.
