According to documents obtained by the Daily Caller, the IRS went after Hunter Biden in 2015 for $112,000 in unpaid income taxes. This occurred the same year he was placed on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas conglomerate.
This latest discovery sends another shockwave through Joe Biden’s beleaguered campaign.
Sizable IRS tax lien
According to the documents, the IRS filed a tax lien on Hunter Biden and his wife for unpaid income taxes during his first full year on the board of Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian oil giant at the center of the impeachment controversy.
From what we know right now, the lien is still active, and Hunter Biden still owes over a hundred thousand dollars in unpaid taxes that were due four years ago.
The IRS, in November of 2018 stated, “We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid. 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.”
These massive tax liabilities were accrued at the same time Hunter Biden was reaping the benefits of his cushy job at Burisma, a job the younger Biden received despite having no background or experience in the energy industry.
Of greater concern is the fact that his father Joe Biden, who was the vice president at the time, was in charge of U.S. policy regarding Ukraine.
President Trump was rightly concerned about the Bidens’ involvement in Ukraine and whether any wrongdoing was committed on their part.
Joe Biden wants people to trust him when it comes to dealing with foreign countries. How can he be trusted until all the facts of this case come out? Even Ukrainian officials confirmed that Hunter Biden was brought on to the Burisma board because of his connections.
Surrounded by corruption
The allegations surrounding Joe Biden’s decision to use his power as the vice president to benefit his son and sell access to his office deserve far more attention than they have to date.
Now it seems that Hunter Biden has been shown to be both an accomplice to his father’s corruption as well as a tax evader. How will the Democrat voter base respond to these revelations?
Hunter Biden is punching hole after hole in his father’s campaign. If Joe Biden gets the nomination, President Trump will surely show no mercy on the debate stage or anywhere else. The media may not ask the hard questions, but the president will.
