Original "Real Housewives of Miami" star Alexia Echevarria and her power player husband Herman are in a tiff with the federal government and now, they have to pay up.

The couple, famous for their most high-profile roles on "RHOM," owe the IRS $94,078.44 in taxes for 2009. According to the Miami-Dade County clerk's office, the Echevarrias now have a lien on their Miami Beach home.

Though notified in May, the reality TV couple still has yet to pay.

This is the latest in a string of troubles for the Echevarrias.

Rosello previously faced felonious assault charges, but the case was settled pending completion of community service.

Her youngest son, Frankie, is still recovering from a near-fatal car crash last August.

Alexia, AKA the Cuban Barbie, infamously dissed the "lower people" of blue collar city Hialeah on the show last season.

She also appeared in the second season of the Miami installment of the "Real Housewives" franchise aired on Bravo!, which completed airing earlier this month.

CORRECTION: A headline on an earlier version of this story indicated that the couple owes almost $1 million in back taxes. It has been corrected to reflect they owe nearly $100,000.
