The home of Rachel Noerdlinger — an aide to Mayor Bill de Blasio who has recently come under fire for her boyfriend being a convicted killer and her controversial public comments about police — was hit with a $28,190 federal tax lien.

The Internal Revenue Service placed the lien on her house in Edgwater, N.J. in 2011 because she failed to pay a tax debt on time. Noerdlinger, who is chief of staff to First Lady Chirlaine McCray, has been working out a monthly payment plan, the New York Observer reported.

“Rachel has worked with the relevant agencies to create a plan that will resolve these outstanding items, and we have no doubt she will do so,” Phil Walzak, spokesperson for de Blasio, told the Observer.

Noerdlinger earns $170,000 per year as an aide. A DNAinfo report last week found that Noerdlinger’s boyfriend was convicted of fatally shooting a teenager when he was a teen. [NYO]Mark Maurer
