Seems like Lindsey Vonn sets records every time she clicks in her skis. But when it comes to keeping records of, say, her income and taxes, well, not so much.

Turns out Vonn and her estranged husband, Thomas Vonn owed $1.7 million to the IRS for 2010 earnings. "The money owed was for the 2010 tax year, which was filed on time, and it has been paid in full," Vonn posted on her Facebook page. "This is an important lesson for me. Not being in control of my finances and relying on someone else who you believed had your best interest at heart was a mistake and one I will not make twice."

Vonn's still one step ahead of us, however: She filed both her 2010 and 2011 taxes on time.
