Hunter Biden, President Biden’s son, has been charged with nine counts of tax crimes, according to a federal indictment unsealed Thursday in the Central District of California.
The indictment charges him with failure to file and pay taxes, evasion of assessment and filing a false or fraudulent tax return. Instead of paying the taxes, the indictment alleges he spent that income on a litany of personal items ranging from a Lamborghini rental to luxury hotels and escort services. Many of these purchases, the government says, were classified by Hunter Biden as business expenses.
Federal prosecutors allege that Hunter Biden engaged in “a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million” in federal income taxes for the years 2016 through 2019. During these years, from 2016 through Oct. 15, 2020, Hunter Biden made over $7 million in total gross income, according to the indictment.
