Needless to say, this has not been a great year for Sinéad O'Connor. 

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer has been named in a a tax scandal following an audit! 

According to The Sun, Sinéad had to pay over €160,000 to the revenue as a result of a false declaration of PAYE and PRSI. 

Apparently "the Revenue Commissioners calculated a tax of €90,543, an interest of €42,599 and penalties of €27,162."

Sinéad was one of a number of names which appeared on the  tax defaulters list, which is issued every three months by our Government. 

Over 100 companies and individuals had their tax cases finalised from this year, with the tax inspectors raking in a total of €17.44 million… not bad! 

Thankfully, Sinéad was prompt paying her penalties, and she won't face further action.
