Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis must be thrilled that the IRS has dropped a $33 million tax lien against him for unpaid back taxes.

TMZ uncovered the findings and reported them to Joe, who was unaware of the situation. When they called to get a comment from Joe he replied, “Really? I paid it?”

Francis made a few phone calls after he received the news and called TMZ back to report that he “thinks” that the IRS just dropped the lien because he doesn’t think he paid a dime.

We’re with TMZ in saying…wouldn’t you know if you paid a $33 million tax bill? And if he didn’t…he should consider himself very lucky indeed!
