Nicolas Cage has paid off $600 000 (R5.3-million) towards his massive tax debt.
The actor is slowly paying back the $13-million (R115-million) he owes in back taxes after splurging on extortionate purchases between 2004 and 2009, TMZ is reporting.
However, he still owes about $6 million thanks to his love of expensive gadgets, despite already paying off $6,257,005 in April.
The actor filed a lawsuit against his former business manager Sam Levin in 2009 claiming he had led him "down a path of financial ruin".
Nicolas once splashed out $276 000 on a 67-million-year-old dinosaur skull, outbidding Leonardo DiCaprio to get his hands on the unique prehistoric artefact.
He also owns a jet, two yachts, three castles, two islands in the Bahamas and several mansions.
The 48-year-old actor - who is currently filming superhero comedy Kick-Ass 2 - had already been forced to sell his extensive comic book collection in 1997 for $1.6-million.
The National Treasure star confessed in 2010: "Over the course of my career I have paid at least $70-million in taxes. Unfortunately, due to a recent legal situation, another approximate $14-million is owed to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), however, I am under new business management and am happy to say that I am current for 2009.
"All taxes will be paid including any to be determined state taxes."
