According to Celebrity Net Worth, Lindsay Lohan is worth between $800,000 and $1 million. The outlet also reports that at the height of her career, Lohan had racked up an impressive net worth of about $28 million; however, because of her run-ins with the law, stints in rehab, and countless legal battles, Lohan faced ton of public scrutiny and lost out on multiple movie roles, endorsements, and other gigs.The "Freaky Friday" star also had her bank accounts seized by the IRS in 2012 after reportedly owing nearly $234,000 in back taxes (via HuffPost), and in 2017, it was reported that Lohan still owed the IRS $100,000 (via People).

The outlet reports that before Lohan's legal troubles started interfering with her career, the singer and businesswoman made around $550,000 for "Freaky Friday," $1 million each for "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" and "Mean Girls," and $7.5 million a piece for "Just My Luck" and "Georgia Rule." 

In 2013, she earned $2 million for her role in "Scary Movie 5" opposite Charlie Sheen, and in 2014, she earned an additional $2 million for filming "Lindsay," an inclusive interview series with Oprah Winfrey.

Lindsay has had a few business ventures outside of acting

While Lindsay Lohan has a few film/TV gigs on her plate — per IMDb, she's teaming up with Netflix for an untitled project — she revealed in a 2019 interview with Variety in 2019 that she started her own production company. "I love acting. It's my passion. But I like being behind the scenes," she confessed. "If I'm not filming at the moment, I need to be creative somehow. I can't just sit and do nothing. If I'm not on a set, then I'd rather do something, so I started my own company — Seven Wonders Prods. — and I like that it's just mine and that I don't have to answer to people anymore. I can just do it myself. It's nice to have that power back."

In addition to her production company, Lohan also opened up a resort on the island of Mykonos, Greece in 2019, where her MTV reality series, "Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club," was also filmed. Even though the show was canceled after one season and her club is no longer operating, the "Herbie: Fully Loaded" actress continues to live overseas, spending much of her time in Dubai. "It's a city built on desert, I came here in 2008 when they had just finished building the Atlantis hotel," she told Esquire Middle East in April 2020. "I've been living in the UAE for six years, but I go back to New York a lot."

Lindsay loves life in Dubai, according to her friends

"I love living in New York, but I do love the serenity and peace that I find living in the Middle East because there are no cameras in Dubai and I can actually focus on what I want to do in life," Lindsay Lohan revealed to Entertainment Tonight (via People). "I don't always have to be scrutinized every second. I can have a private life and have a public life, but when I choose to. And I think that's really important."

Friends of the actress echoed Lohan's sentiment about living in Dubai, with a source close to former club owner telling People in 2017, "She's blonde and happy and she looks good. She's oddly very popular there and she is kind of like Paris Hilton. She has a bunch of girlfriends and she has a place now. She has become a lady who lunches with all these women who have businesses. It's taken her time to get used to the lifestyle, but she likes it now."
