Of all the moms featured on MTV’s Teen Mom series, Maci Bookout has always been considered the “good girl” – but In Touch has discovered that Maci has landed in hot water with the federal government.

In Touch has obtained a copy of a tax lien issued against Maci, stating that she owes the IRS $78,308 from 2011.

“She’s in denial,” a source tells In Touch of Maci’s financial situation. “She needs to find a way to pay back this money. She’s gotten herself into a lot of trouble.”

“She’s been telling people that she’s working on paying it back, but very little progress has been made,” another source tells In Touch, adding that Maci — who worked for MTV as an independent contractor and didn’t have taxes deducted from her paychecks — is unemployed and living off cash she makes by promoting companies on Twitter.

For more on Maci’s financial troubles including how she landed in this predicament and what she’s spending her cash on, pick up the new issue of In Touch Weekly on stands now.
