DETROIT The bill is growing for former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.

The government wants Kilpatrick to pay $195,000 for tax crimes while in office. That's on top of $4.5 million in restitution to the city for other convictions from his corruption trial.

The tax figure was disclosed in a court filing Tuesday. Kilpatrick is serving a 28-year prison sentence for rigging contracts, taking bribes and other corrupt acts.

Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds will hold a hearing on restitution Dec. 10. It could be Kilpatrick's last appearance in Detroit unless his convictions are overturned on appeal.

He's being held at a federal prison in Milan in southeastern Michigan but is seeking a transfer near family in Texas.

Kilpatrick also owes $854,000 to Detroit from an earlier conviction in state court.
