3:35 PM PT -- David Bennett of Thav Gross P.C., attorney for Franklin's
Estate, says the Estate disputes the claim as Aretha paid off the vast
majority of her debt before she died. He says, "The Estate is diligently
working to resolve any remaining issues."When Aretha Franklin died in
August she left behind a legacy as the undisputed "Queen of Soul" ... and
also a huge debt to Uncle Sam.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the IRS claims Franklin owes
more than $6.3 MILLION in back taxes from 2012 to 2018, and an additional
$1.5 mil in penalties.

Aretha's reps tell us the massive tax lien is the result of several audits
over the last 6 years. The weird thing ... one of the years in question is
listed as 2018, and that tax year is not over.

We broke the story ... the "Respect" singer's being dogged in death by
more than just the tax man -- her lawyer also filed docs in October
demanding the estate pony up nearly $54k to cover bills dating back 6
years.

There's also a new lien filed by a publishing company that wants $136,000
for royalties in connection with the 1973 song "Angel."

Say a little prayer for the person managing her finances.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.

ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.

Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
it is.

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.

A paltry amount compared to Trumps tax returns...

vigorously pursuing all appropriate avenues of investigation."
