The demand is not the first time the 66-year-old has been hit with a minuscule tax bill by U.S. authorities, as in 2013 he received a request for $138 (£110), including a lien of just $40 (£32) and $98 (£78) in penalties.

With some estimates placing Wonder's net worth in the proximity of $100 million (£79 million), the star is unlikely to have any problem settling his alleged tax bill.
