Los Angeles - Courtney Love has been hit with a tax bill of over $300 000.

The 49-year-old star was a handed a $319 749 lien last month for the tax period ending in 2012, according to IRS filings seen by the New York Post newspaper.

The blonde rocker - who has admitted to having financial difficulties in the past - last year received a tax bill for $266 861, which included unpaid taxes from 2009 and 2011 and she also had a lien filed against her in 2009 for money she owed in 2007 but is reported to have paid it off.

And on Tuesday Courtney was also ordered by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to pay fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir, who claims she was defamed by the Malibu hitmaker on Twitter, $96 000 as after originally being ordered to pay her $450 000 she only paid approximately $350 000.

The Celebrity Skin hitmaker - who was married to the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - earns the majority of her money through royalties and other revenue's from Kurt's estate, as well as from her acting career and touring with her band Hole.

In a previous interview, Courtney - who claims she's been sober since 2007 - admitted that she and Kurt have struggled with money issues before his suicide in 1994.

She said: "We could never find our money ... Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54m?"

Courtney and Kurt's daughter Frances Bean Cobain took control of End of Music LLC, which earns money from Kurt's publicity rights, in 2012.
