The Osbourne family has found itself in a bit of tax trouble, owing back taxes totaling $1.7 million.

MSNBC reports that the legendary rock couple Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne owe back taxes from the 2008 and 2009 fiscal years, totaling balances of $718,948 and $1,024,175 respectively. 

To make matters worse, the U.S. government has now put a lien on one of their homes in Los Angeles.  The couple�s mansion in Hidden Hills could be seized at any moment, with another Malibu beach home next on the list.

It was only six years ago that the couple was considered to be among Britain�s wealthiest families, however MSNBC notes that the couple has not been left unaffected by the recession.

Sharon Osbourne took to her Twitter account over the weekend saying: "You can't rely on anyone but yourself. But you have to be on top of your own business affairs. My fault...lesson learned."
