Former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden owes unpaid taxes from 2015—when he served on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma, and also a private equity business in China, BHR Partners, and the government has put out a claim on him.
A tax lien has been placed on him by the IRS, and according to Daily Caller News Foundation, an amount of $112,805 in unpaid taxes is outstanding from 2015.
“We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid,” the IRS stated in the lien notice, which was registered with the Washington, D.C., Recorder of Deeds. “Therefore, there is a lien in favor of the United States on all property and rights to property belonging to this taxpayer for the amount of these taxes.”
No corresponding lien release form from Hunter has been listed with the Washington, D.C., Recorder of Deeds.
A tax lien for $48,929 was ordered against Hunter and former wife Kathleen Biden in August 2017.
Hunter, with no previous experience in natural gas, was appointed to the board of Burisma in 2014 and remained there for five years.
According to the Daily Caller, “Biden did not receive any direct compensation from Burisma—rather, the Ukrainian company wired funds to Rosemont Seneca Bohai (RSB), an American firm controlled by Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner Devon Archer. Between June 2014 and October 2015, RSB wired a total of $708,302 to Hunter Biden for undisclosed purposes while RSB was receiving funds from Burisma.”
Kathleen Biden filed for divorce from Hunter in 2016. In court documents, she revealed they were confronted with a “shocking and overwhelming” amount of debt, including “maxed-out credit card debt, double mortgages on both real properties they own, and tax debt of at least $313,970.”
Kathleen accused her husband of spending thousands on “his own interests (including drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he had sexual relations) while leaving the family with no funds to pay legitimate bills.”
Their divorce was finalized in 2017.
A former stripper from Arkansas Lunden Roberts has filed for child support for their 16-month-old baby after it was ascertained through DNA testing that Hunter is the baby’s father.
Biden swore under oath on Nov. 27; he had been unemployed since May, with no monthly income.
Roberts has claimed Hunter has avoided his “natural and legal duty to support his child by failing to provide basic information about his income, finances, and lifestyle.”
“[I]t should by now, be abundantly clear to the Court that the defendant is not going to provide any of his discoverable financial information unless the court forces him to do so,” the filing read.
