Emmanuel Lewis Taxes

Former child actor Emmanuel Lewis has lost his home to foreclosure as a result of his failure to pay taxes.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, Lewis neglected to pay a total of $44,081.41 in state, county and school taxes between 2007 to 2010.

The 40-year-old, 4’3″ tall television star’s Fayette County, GA home was foreclosed on and then sold for only $56,000 at an auction back in September.

Lewis gained fame in his role as the star – and title character – of Webster, a popular 1980s television sitcom. He was also a cast member on the first season of reality show The Surreal Life.
