CHASKA, Minn. (AP) - Prince looks like a pauper in a list of

delinquent taxpayers in Minnesota.

Carver County tax records show that Prince's PRN Music Corp.

alone owes more than $227,000 for 2009 taxes to the state, Chaska

School District and other government bodies. The county is just

southwest of Minneapolis.

PRN Music is the home to Prince's Paisley Park Studios in

Chanhassen. Several other properties in Carver County under the

musician's full name, Prince R. Nelson, are also listed as

delinquent.

County taxpayer services manager Laurie Engelen estimates that

altogether PRN Music and Prince's other properties in the county

owe about $450,000 in taxes. She says Prince paid late in 2006 and

2008 on his studios.

PRN and Prince's studios don't have listed phone numbers, and a

talent agency that has represented Prince in the past didn't

immediately respond to an e-mail message seeking comment.

A notice of delinquent taxes that included Prince's properties

was published last week in the Chaska Herald.
