New mom Tori Spelling has had $700,000 docked from her bank account by U.S. tax officials to cover an outstanding lien.

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star, daughter of multi-millionaire TV mogul Aaron Spelling, and her husband Dean McDermott have been struggling financially for some time, and last summer, the couple was slapped with a federal tax lien for an unpaid bill relating to earnings from 2014.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, that amount has finally been settled after authorities at America’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) had the funds withdrawn from Tori and Dean’s accounts.

The news emerges three weeks after Dean settled his support case with his ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace, after he was threatened with jail if he failed to pay up.

Tori and Dean, who welcomed their fifth child in early March, are also facing legal action from American Express bosses after failing to pay off their credit card debts, and were sued by officials at City National Bank in December over an unpaid loan.
