Actress Teri Polo is facing a hefty tax bill after U.S. authorities filed a lien against her.

The Meet the Parents star is said to owe around $122,000 (£81,333) in allegedly unpaid taxes dating back to 2011, according to Tmz.com.

Officials at America's Internal Revenue Service (Irs) filed a lien against her earlier this year (13) in a bid to recover the cash.

Polo was previously in trouble with the tax office in 2009 when she was accused of falling behind on $433,736 (£289,157).
