The former Baywatch star hit headlines last month (Dec12) when it emerged officials at America's Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filed a tax lien against her, alleging she owes more than $259,395 (£162,122) dating back to 2011.
Anderson, who is also said to owe $112,119 (£70,074) to tax officials in the state of California, has now spoken out about her financial problems, insisting she is dealing with the bill in small steps.
She tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, ""I still owe the taxes but I'm working on that. I'm paying that off monthly. I was in a bizarre situation with a former business manager. I don't want to blame anyone. I want to put it behind me and move forward.""
Anderson was named among California's Top 500 Delinquent Tax Payers of last year (12).
