Singer Dionne Warwick claims in a recent bankruptcy filing that she owes nearly $10 million in back taxes and her monthly expenses exceed $20,000. The South Orange resident and singer of classics such as ‘‘Walk on By’’ and “I Say a Little Prayer’’ filed a Chapter 7 petition in US bankruptcy court in New Jersey last Thursday. In the filing, the 72-year-old listed liabilities that include nearly $7 million owed to the Internal Revenue Service for the years 1991 to 1999 and more than $3 million in business taxes owed to the state of California. Warwick, a cousin of the late Whitney Houston, also listed $20,950 in monthly income from royalties, retirement income, and a contract with Culver City, Calif.-based Star Girl Productions.
